Hi friendly Strangers! Maggie here, breaking the fourth wall. I have to express some humility here, and request a bit of assistance.
You see, the promptings for this show came from the Holy Spirit, to myself and a few others, but I’m not of the opinion that we have compiled our team completely as of yet.
The vision I received about this show has been one of inclusion and compassion, yet I’ve failed to express that same compassion for my own weaknesses.
In a desire to reach all, and having experienced multiple situations where the lack of accurate captioning made it impossible for me to comprehend a show, I set about attempting to make certain that all of our captions were accurate and there was a transcript to download.
The learning curve to provide such wasn’t that great, and I was able to learn the YouTube Studio and learned that I could start with their automated captions.
After a few weeks, I discovered that the process I was using was not one that was appropriate for my disabled hands. I was incurring a greater level of pain. So much so that I had stopped working on my book.
At the same time, I experienced an exacerbation of my mental illness that coincided with the anniversary of our collective trauma. The result was a disruption in The Force.
Well, at least a disruption in the bond that holds this show together. But as we have been reminded by our Apostles, that gold used to repair broken things, our broken vessels, our broken friendships, our trust, we can use that repair to make it all stronger than it had ever been before.
We are looking for more members of our team. We invite you to contact us at contact@Strangers-No-More.com if you would like to lend a hand.
This is a volunteer effort. Maybe even a ministry, if you will. But in our desire to be accessible to all, we need to respect our own limitations.
Although I NEED captions and transcripts, that doesn’t mean I’m the best person to provide that service. It would be nice if automated technology was a bit more inclusive and accurate. But I’m sure that is quickly on its way.
This week’s episode will be posted later today!
Sorry for the wait. It will have automated captions available, so please let us know of any glaring errors that we can go in and quickly edit.
Thank you for your interest!
We hope your weekend is full of the Love and Lighte of Jesus Christ!
We love you and so does God!
