Honoring Christ In Technology-Day 2

God’s wise method for making himself known on the earth in something as simple as soil, meals, and a family is brilliant. Why?  We must first realize that God is timeless (outside of and unbound by limits) and can see the beginning of time as well as he knows the ending. It would seem logical that God not only saw our “today” while creating the world in Genesis, and in deciding how he would sovereignly lay out, orchestrate, and...

Honoring Christ In Technology-Day 1

Have you ever wondered why God doesn’t begin the story of life with a 501(c3) non-profit entity? Why didn’t he begin with a building? Wall Street? A School? Why did God begin the story of life with a marriage, a family, and a meal (The Garden)? And yet, with all the technological advancements and church ministry advancements of the past two thousands years, it would seem that in all of our “evolvement” we struggle in keeping our...

Honoring Christ In Improv, Acting, And Presenting Scripture-Day 3

Tom Boomershine talks about how we must once again start to experience old texts – and especially the Bible – orally as they were originally conveyed orally or, in the case of the Epistles, they were written in such a way as to be read orally to others. Tom read the passage in Mark about the calming of the storms and seas. He read it once as a sort of standard reading: the sort of thing you might experience in any given liturgical...

Honoring Christ In Improv, Acting, And Presenting Scripture-Day 2

We have several actors presenting great talks over at MakeJesusCulture.com, Stephen Traphton among them, and the one thing they all seemed to have in common was the expression of the idea of incarnation: that an actor at his best understands, in a weird way, the work of the Son Jesus. Empathy – if this is truly a human act, an act of those who experience and participate in consciousness – mirrors the incarnation as a microcosm in each...

Honoring Christ In Film And Animation-Day 3

Sing We are to see our Savior in the Words of Scripture, in the Man of Jesus, and in the beauty of creation. We are to ponder and savor what everything teaches us about Jesus himself, and then we are to sing. When I say sing, I’m not just referring to singing itself, although you will read some Scriptures today that will blow your mind regarding how singing is not just a response to truth, it helps us learn...

Honoring Christ In Film And Animation-Day 2

Savor Let’s build off yesterday’s idea of seeing God with the eyes of our hearts. Let’s continue hanging off every stroke of creation’s artistry. Let’s now savor him.  One of the most visual books of the Bible, and rightly so, is Revelation.  God cannot communicate his beauty to us simply in script. It has to come to us in surround sound. Read Revelation 1:1-3: The revelation of Jesus Christ, which...

Honoring Christ In Film And Animation-Day 1

SEE All that we see in creation is in essence a video, animation, or illustration of the mind of God. Think about the visual nature of the Bible. The symbols. The signs. Even Jesus himself—creation’s Master Painter and Word. Jesus is the one who dares to come into his own painting and put on flesh to show us what the Father’s like. Genesis begins with video imagery. The Spirit hovers over the waters, and thus speaks. Speaking takes...

Honoring Christ In Hymnody-Day 1

My good friend Lester Ruth is a super nerd. As a super nerd, he dissected the language of our Christian Music’s Top 40 list over the last 50 years, and compared it to the language of the hymns of our faith over the last 4,000 years. He found many striking and almost sickening realities, but I will share just a few that may help us in our study here. First, he found that Trinitarian language has all but disappeared from our TOP 40...
