From time to time, I like to share things I’ve done in the past. One of those was this video, which is a favorite of mine.

I’ve loved the song Sea of Faces by Kutless from the first time I heard it. It’s just one of those songs that hit me and I knew I wanted to do something with it. Something that Showed how Christ is with us in this sea of humanity, but how could I pull it off. I’m not sure what made me think of using the puzzle, but it was pretty soon after I generated the first piece that I began to realize that noses and ears would wind up in mouths by virtue of the shapes with which I was working. It didn’t take long to realize that this would generate a cacophony of conflict, the very thing that makes us feel lost in this world. From there it was just a matter of painting the pieces and shooting the video. I did this video quite a few years ago and it is still one of my all time favorites.

For this one the song started the ball in motion, but a lot of the finished product came along after I started. It happens a lot like that for me. The best ideas happen once you start. What do you need to start?

My friend DeAnn Roe shared this and I need to share it again. It’s the story of Jeremy Cowart this is great. It is the proof of I can do all things through Christ who strength. It is so inspirational. Enjoy and be inspired.

I preached a message on grace today and I needed a video clip to set it off. I found one by one of the funniest most entertaining speakers around. I hope you enjoy it.

I love making art ministry videos. The style has changed over the years, due in large part to changes made in the programs I use to generate them, but what is always important to me is putting out good content that allows me to share the Gospel. Here are 10 of my recent favorites.











I know I have shared this before, it’s one of my all time favorite videos. I had so much fun creating it and it really gets to the heart of my ministry. So many people feel like they are just a number, or no real significance, lost in a sea of faces. Nothing could be further from the truth. I feel like since this audience is constantly changing and growing, I need to put this out every so often as a reminder.

How would you communicate this message?

Spoken word artist Joseph Solomon shows the power of the spoken word and God’s power over doubt. Saw this just this morning, and it claimed it place here. You MUST watch this! It is amazing and anointed. This is a master class in how to give a message in a way that touches hearts.

My faith tradition has a very special service called the Love Feast. It’s a communion service with a difference. Modeled after John 13, the service starts with foot washing, followed by a simple mean and finally bread and cup communion. It may sound odd, but it builds unity in the body and it can be quite beautiful. In addition, the service takes quite literally the scriptural call to self examination and relational examination before taking communion.

1 Corinthians 11:27-29 says “So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.” Paul is basically saying, “Check yourself before you wreck yourself.” Communion is all about union, in other words unity. It is meant to remind us we all have a part in Jesus death because He died for our sins. In the same way, all who have received Christ, share in His resurrection. Communion puts us all on a level playing field, sinners saved by grace. From this pride should be replaced by unity, love and gratitude. Any less and we’re not doing it right. Look at the condition of the church today. We can do better. We can be more humble, more loving… and on and on and on.

In the past, the deacons in a church would visit every family and ask three questions all designed to build up and strengthen the body. That tradition doesn’t happen much any more, so I decided to do it digitally.

This video is part of a new presentation I will be offering soon on communion and the Love Feast. Contact me for more details.
