6 free short videos well worth watching

These 6 videos are about as different as different can be, covering art, adoption, Noah’s Ark, the Gospel behind bars, and both witnessing outside abortion clinics, and not witnessing at all. They also differ in length, organized here from the shortest, at 4 minutes, to the longest, at 39.

What unites them? They are all fantastic! And they all speak to what God has done and is doing in the world around us.

What is Art? (4 minutes)

God is an artist, and the fact that we aren’t going around saying “Wow!’ and “Unbelievable!” all the time is only because we’ve let worldly cynicism cloud our vision. In this chapter from his “bookumentary,” Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl, N.D. Wilson does an amazing job of opening Christians’ eyes to the wonder all around us – he helps us regain our ability to see things as they really are.

i like adoption (6 minutes)

A film to watch with your children – this is about earthly families, but Christians can’t miss the connection to what God has done for us. This is a joy to watch!

Who will stand for life? (8 minutes)

Each day John Barros sits outside an Orlando abortion clinic and shares God’s Truth with everyone who enters. He’s been doing it for years. And God has used him to save more than 2,500 children. You can find more about him here and here and by clicking the title above.

Noah’s Ark – a real boat that was really seaworthy (10 minutes)

An outside observer might think the organized Church was doing its best to undermine the credibility of the Noah’s Ark, presenting it in children’s bible story books as being too small for the giraffes to even really fit in (their necks having to extend out an open window). In this 10-minute video, we learn how the biblical proportions show it to be a seaworthy vessel. If you find this intriguing, the last 20-minutes of the video can be seen here.

Sing a little louder (11 minutes)

This short film tells the true story of a Christian congregation that was confronted with the monstrosity of what the Nazis were up to in the Holocaust. What was their response? More importantly, what’s our own response to the abortion holocaust going on in our time? Don’t watch this film if you don’t want to be confronted.

Don’t waste your life sentence (39 minutes)

In John Piper’s 2003 book, Don’t Waste Your Life, he challenged Christians not to get distracted by and caught up in “Freedom 55,” the big house, the shiny new car, and whatever other trappings are said to make “the American Dream.” Piper’s message was, if you don’t have Jesus, you have nothing.

In 2009 Piper was invited to visit the Louisiana State Penitentiary, described as “the largest and historically one of the bloodiest maximum-security prisons in the USA.” These inmates don’t have fast cars, big houses, or any prospects of ever getting them. Piper’s message to them was, don’t let your deprivation distract you from what you could have. Interspersed with clips of Piper preaching, we hear from inmates who have been changed by the gospel while they’ve been in prison. And we learn how here too, God’s people can live for Him.

"Be Fruitful and Multiply" tour comes to Albertan April 19-22

Families are having fewer babies, and the world’s population is expected to peak and then decline later this century. The world isn’t prepared for the impact that this is going to have. However, what may be the greatest challenge of this century can also be a huge opportunity for the Church to shine…. if we embrace the blessing of children, and are prepared to raise them faithfully.

In this presentation, Reformed Perspective’s Mark Penninga will unpack data, history, and God’s Word to make the case for embracing the gift of children with open arms.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Ages 16-116, single or married, children or no children, these presentations are suitable for all mature Christians.

WHEN AND WHERE?

Edmonton: April 19 at 7:30 pm at Immanuel Canadian Reformed Church

Barhead: April 20 at 7:30 pm at Emmanuel United Reformed Church

Ponoka: April 22 at 7:30 pm at Parkland Reformed Church
