Remember Nooma? (This is different.)
Scott Galloway is the Founder and Executive Producer of InLighten Films which warms this Presbyterian’s heart because:
- These short films are based on The Revised Common Lectionary. (Tip of the hat to Protestant Mainliners.)
- They are indeed short – 3 to 5 minutes long.
- They are professionally produced and fresh.
- They can be used for sermon openings, Sunday School, youth/young adult groups, and Bible studies.
Scott also happens to be a Presbyterian from Davidson, N.C. and he totally gets that without stories it’s very difficult to capture the imagination and hearts of busy 21st Century humans.
Most of our churches – especially our beloved Mainline congregations – need a jolt that reminds us who we are and why we were created. I believe that these short films might just be that jolt that moves us from tired preaching and teaching to something more spiritually moving. Check them out.
