I know what does this have to do with art and ministry, well not a lot but these folks sure know how to put on a spectacle. None of my teams are playing, so I can just enjoy the game whoever wins which is kind of nice. Beyonce is doing the halftime show and I’m sure there will be spectacle there as well, and while she is really talented, it’s not my style. So all in all, it’s a nice evening at home with the family.
In a game like this, where the outcome is not too important to me, like many other Americans, I appreciate the game, but I watch for the commercials.
What strikes me is the amount of money these companies were willing to spend and the creativity invested in getting their message out.
I know none of you have that kind of budget, (if you do, please contact me, I could really use someone to underwrite my speaking ministry ) but it occurs to me that we have a better message than any of these companies and a command from God to get it out. We may not have the budget (though our Father does own the cattle on a thousand hills) but we do have the creativity. This year how will you invest your creativity in getting his message out.
Here’s a challenge. Make a 30 second video that tells people about Jesus. Be creative, put it on Youtube, and promote it. Tell the story.
By the way the Doritos commercial with the dad and his little girl is a classic.
By the way, here’s a Superbowl ad made by a church.
