Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 1

Day 1 | FOR THE MIND, THE BODY & THE SOUL Songs are important to us! They not only have the power to equip us for a good car ride, but the world is making every effort to perpetually define the style, the songs and the artists that are appropriate for the training of the human mind, body and soul. We must realize that God created singing, and thus as its grand architect, he knows completely its purpose and appropriate...

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.

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 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 Audio Mixing-Day 2

Hear Jesus says, “to those who have ears let them hear.” In Bible times, hearing was a necessity, even over that of the other four senses. Only about 2% of the population could read, and so they heard information. Fun Fact … did you know, that sound resonates in the brain faster than through sight? It also enters first through the spine. It rouses the work of the body before the mind. Sounds educate people differently than do...

Honoring Christ In Audio Mixing-Day 1

Theological Sound A study was done in which gardens were planted in different and yet identical greenhouse environments. The only thing that varied from greenhouse to greenhouse, was the music.Various boom boxes were placed next to the plants to serenade them with tunes as they grew. One greenhouse played classical. Another, metal. Another, rock. Another, pop etc. By the end of the experiment, the only plants thriving were the ones...

WMC – 0123 – Practical Advice for Sound Techs

You’ve been there. You work for weeks on a big Christmas production, Easter production or even just a big weekend service. You and a team of volunteers pour hours into the service, you work your hearts out, play your hearts out on the day of and then comes the feedback: “I couldn’t hear the vocalists” or “The drums were too loud” or “There was a guitar playing?” And your heart sinks. All...
