Yesterday I heard that today will be the final show of “The Catholics Next Door with Greg and Jennifer Willits”. If the Catholic new media movement had parents they would probably be Greg and Jennifer. As a matter of fact Austin Catholic New Media very well might not exist had it not been for them. You see a few years ago at the Catholic New Media Conference Greg spoke about the need for smaller more local new media groups to keep the conference feel alive. The types of organizations where people could get together and work on new media projects together or help each other flesh out ideas for their latest blog post or podcast. It was from this talk that the idea for ACNM was born.
I have no doubt that God will continue to lead Greg and Jennifer into new areas of evanglization and will continue to open the door for them to spread his word. Whether that be on the airwaves, on the web or in book form, they have a special gift for doing good and I believe they will continue to do so. As for the rest of us we soldier on with the mission that God has put in our heart and the words that Christ spoke;
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations
Thank you Greg and Jennifer for all the laughs and inspiration. I look forward to your next project.
