world view

This is a video we showed at Crossings back in April. I have been wanting to post it for awhile...but because we performed the background music live, the video originally had no sound.

This weekend, I finally got around to editing up the live mix from that Sunday and adding it to the video. And now that it is YouTube ready, I can post it.

That week, we were talking about creativity...which is one of our 5 Core Values...and our belief that, regardless of what we may think about ourselves, every one of us is, indeed, creative. You may not paint, sculpt, or make music, but you have been wired with certain gifts and passions that allow you to see the world from an angle that no one else can. And our call is to take that view of God and the world, and respond by expressively pouring ourselves out.

A great example of that is found in Luke 7.

With the video, we choose to use a form of art that we had yet to use at Crossings: photography. I also tried to be as creative as I could with the display of the photography in the video.

The song is "My World View" by...believe it or not...Audio Adrenaline. We changed it up quite a bit by using banjo, acoustic guitar, melodica, piano, etc. I was pretty happy with how it turned out and will probably be posting the full song, as an mp3, in the next couple days.

All photography is by Erin Maple. She is a part of our faith community and was gracious enough to provide us with a small glimpse into her world view.

So, with out further ado...
