A friend told me about the following video earlier this week. I have been looking for it for years. In the clip, Peter Jennings interviews John Wimber, the founder of the Vineyard movement. It’s from 1995, a season in the Vineyard movement with which I am still not terribly comfortable. However, I think it’s a good reminder of our heritage and the environment from which the Vineyard sprang.
If you have seen pictures of Wimber, he looks different here. This is just a couple of years before he passed away and after he lost a lot of weight. According to Carol Wimber, he was so sick, they didn’t even know if he’d be able to do the interview.
I remember there being a bit more to this interview. If anyone knows where I can access the remainder, please let me know.
How do you think Wimber did in answering Jennings’ questions? Does anything in the video make you uncomfortable or nervous? Anything inspire you? What are your thoughts?
