Years ago, I put together a slideshow of gospel art work and music for a Christmas Relief Society Activity. The theme was “Draw Near” and the slide show was our closing activity after a nice dinner. A year later, I found it worked great as a silent Christmas lesson in YW.
I have exhausted every option available to find a way to successfully share these videos and been met with limited success each time. Each slideshow is nearly a half hour in length and the files are simply too large for every previous option of downloading technology to work with even 50% success. Last year I tried generating DVDs and found that was WAY more than I bargained for in time and resources and as a result had decided I was done trying to share this particular work. But as this time of year rolls around and the requests start coming in, I’ve been willing to give it one more try. Google drive now offers the sharing option for files this large so I’m going to put it out there with no guarantees it will work but it’s at least a new option.
The movie files can be found at these links:
For any interested, I have three paper copies of silent Christmas lessons I’ve collected. I apologize for not knowing their source. They are:
The “Draw Near” show on this page has been edited with new music that is free to share under the Intellectual Reserve copyright of the Church, Sally Deford’s generous site and copyright and one free download from a LDS music site (Power in His Touch).
The newer show, “Come Unto Him” uses new and old artwork under the same Intellectual Reserve copyright making it legal to share for personal and church use, it also contains only scripture references, one page of quotes from Elder Holland and the music from the seminary section of the Church music site.
