A New Color Pallet
Here’s another Motion Scripture based on Matt 6:16-18, it was featured in this Episode of the Preposterous Project:
This idea was born out of a desire to be “the church” in our neighborhood. This isn’t a systematic plan to invite people to church, though that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Rather, it’s about building relationships and developing community so that we can love others. If we base the value of our relationship with our neighbors off wether they come to church or not, then we’re missing the point. We must value our relationships even if our neighbors never come to church, after all, the Church isn’t a building. Hopefully that doesn’t sound harsh, but if it does leave me a comment and explain why! I’d love to chat this up.

The video mentions an Ideabook which
will transform your life has some simple ideas to get your brain churning. Here are a few sample pages to give you a feel for what’s included.
I’d love to hear you thoughts on the video itself. What did you take away from it?
Here’s another simple video for episode #5 of the Preposterous Project. (I’m not sure if you’re picking up on the trend, but I usually refer to all my videos as simple, that way, if you complain, I can say “well sure… but it was just a simple one 😀 ). I recently started taking an After Effects expressions class at FXPHD, and use a “simple” expression to animate the swinging elements. Rather than keyframing them by hand, the expression uses math to control the decay and overswing tied to the rotation property of the shape layer. Here’s the full video for this episode:
Working with the Preposterous Project
This is a simple Motion Bible video that I put together for the Preposterous Project. I’m making a weekly motion graphics (mograph) clip for them that goes along with their main verse. The Preposterous Project aims at being a “not-so-typical” Bible study, and I’m happy to contribute in a small way (really small way). Not only does this give me some space to create the Motion Bible videos, but it also helps me to continually be creating. I often get overwhelmed taking on huge projects, and this allows me to have some boundaries to keep me moving.
We’ll be using the Preposterous videos in some unique ways when we kick off our new year of ministry in September. Here’s Episode #4 which the above video is in:
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything but cancer stuff. I’m finally starting to feel better, so I spent some time this week “experimenting”. I decided to drop all my classes for the summer but one, Spiritual Life. It’s just a one credit class, which has been a perfect fit for my summer-o-cancer. One goal of the class is to experience some new disciples for Christian maturity.
I love Spiritual Disciplines, at least I like learning about them. I’ve often struggled with being consistent with them, but I’ve come to learn that I like spontaneity and change. I’m also learning that I like to be creative, and that technology is not pure evil.
That’s a good question my inquisitive friend, this video has several elements that I’m trying to be disciplined about:
So I don’t know if I’ll do one these videos each week. But I thought it would be fun to create a collection of scripture that’s “in motion”. I may integrate this concept into some other projects I’m working on, or I may use them to build some curriculum around. It would be awesome to have one for EVERY VERSE IN THE BIBLE, perhaps making this a collaborative project.
What do you think? Hit me up with some feedback or a question. What Spiritual Disciplines do you find most “helpful”?
