Christians tend to grab a flag—and a sword and pitchfork—whenever we perceive that our “rights” or our “faith” are being threatened. But as the standard-bearers of Christ, are we really crusading for what we think we are?
Let's re-imagine a key scene from the gospels together, shall we?
The gathered crowd shouted in a frenzy of righteous indignation. Shouts of "stone her" and "kill the b__" rose into a cacophonic haze of hatred that all centred on the one young woman, barely clothed, who trembled in terror on the rough ground at their centre.
The Teacher started making his way through the crowd, and when men and women saw the look on his face, they fell back from his path in silence, wondering what he was going to do.
The woman squinted up at him, too, wondering what new terror was upon her.
It's been on my list for a while--start creating music videos to go with my songs, so I can get my "babies" on YouTube.
Well, this weekend being Easter, and with me seriously needing something "new and creative" to do, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to learn one of the software options I have (the easier to learn, by far - Cyberlink PowerDirector 10) and put together a video for "The Nails (I Did This For You)", the message of which is very appropriate for Easter.
It took a little longer than I thought (and my weekend ended up with a few more adventures than I planned. Hint: there was an emergency trip to town for a new refrigerator), but I got 'er done. Easter Sunday wasn't quite over when I got it posted to YouTube and sent out to various social media platforms, so Yay! And most importantly? This was a lot of fun.
I hope you enjoy it, too!
