What do you think of the production company the Salty Earth Pictures? I found a YouTube channel that is a bit suspicious. Is my suspicion well-founded? (Apparently this company has connections to the WELS.) Be sure to check out "A Word for Women." (It comes dangerously close to a woman doing pastor-like work, unless it actually is pastor-like work.) This is the fishiest set of videos that I have seen; the fishiest has the title "What is your Personal Ministry." Isn't that some sort of Church Growth buzz-phrase?
