All we need is love: discussion with Frank Viola about Social Media Principles and Practice for Christians

Frank Viola and I connected online to record this conversation via zoom.us, a tool I am finding very helpful. We spoke about how to approach the Internet, and especially how to approach the arguments that occur online.  We spoke about the risks and benefits of social media.  God's people do not stop being his people when they launch an Internet browser. Exploring together how God would want us to behave in this brave new world is vital.The conversation was at times humourous, and at times F … [Read more...]

God’s Not Dead: The Movie, and a new friend

Gods-Not-Dead-Facebook

It seems clear to me that 2014 is going to go down as the year of the religious movie. There are a lot of Hollywood movies this year that are covering various biblical stories, and I must say I am looking forward to all of them. God's Not Dead is a movie that I had not heard of until a few minutes ago when I connected for the first time with Rice Broocks thanks to my new favourite web video conferencing program, Zoom.us.  Incidentally, you will most likely be seeing a lot more of Zoom around h … [Read more...]

Nelson Mandela honored by South African pastor, PJ Smyth

This lunchtime I want to recognise that a giant has fallen. Nelson Mandela was nothing short of iconic for decades. He represents so much that is good, and upright, and that reflects the peacemaker values of Jesus Christ.In a nation where the majority were oppressed by the minority he could so easily have become a dictator, and turned the oppression back on those who locked him up for years.Yet he didn't.Mandela chose reconciliation.Mandela chose humilityMandela laid down his power … [Read more...]

The Bible TV series: a brilliant retelling of the greatest story ever told

The human race excels at storytelling. It is how we transmit our values, it is how we make sense of who we are.  Westerners sometimes like to pretend we are too sophisticated for stories. We say, "just give us the facts!" But our constant diet of movies, and TV entertainment demonstrates this is far from the truth. It is concerns me how we passively allow ourselves to be shaped by the stories unbelievers tell us.Meanwhile the greatest library of stories the world has ever seen sits on a s … [Read more...]
