A few months back, I pointed out that David Asscherick, et al., was getting "Nooma" on us and producing a series of videos that dealt with theological issues of particular substance (perhaps a little more substantive than Rob Bell). Recently, I have felt inspired to take on my own film pursuits and produce my own series of "illustrated sermons" on film.
The problem is, I have no expertise, whatsoever, in this field, and I realize that it can cost a lot of money. But I think the money thing may actually be the easier part.
Thus, I am petitioning anyone who has any experience in this field, or knows someone who does. I have contacted a few people to get an idea as to what would go into such a production and, although it has been a little eye-opening, I believe that if God wants such a production to take place, He will provide the resources, time, and money.
So, if you know anything at all about anything, please contact me via this blog, or e-mail me at shawnbrace at gmail dot com.
On another much unrelated note (but not wanting to take up a whole independent post): at Camp Meeting last week in Maine, we took the Earliteens to Funtown Splashtown USA - a small waterpark that was fairly crowded. As we enjoyed the hot weather, I walked around the park for quite a while, searching for a drinking fountain. I was flabbergasted to see a vending machine every ten feet, but not one drinking fountain. When I asked an employee where there was a drinking fountain, she looked at me as if I had five heads.
The fact of the matter is, they do not have a drinking fountain in Splashtown USA.
Shouldn't this be illegal? Isn't there some type of building regulation that would require a public facility to have a drinking fountain? What happens if I come into the park and I do not have $2 to buy an Aquifina? Or what happens if I have $2, but not $4, and one bottle of water doesn't hydrate me enough?
Just as my Irving post a few months back brought about a tremendous change, I hope that, when I return to Splashtown next Camp Meeting, they will have drinking fountains at every corner.
Of course, I am kind of disgusted by public drinking fountains to begin with, but that's besides the point.
