The Bible Project

I just stumbled upon a great series of short animated films that cover passages of Scripture and themes in Scripture. I've only seen a few, but so far it's all on target and quite fun! If you're new in your walk with the Lord or exploring what that might be like, this is a great way to get immersed.

Here's a great one on Holiness.



This one is from their Scripture series:

A Clear Leading tells the story of Quaker abolitionist John Woolman, who spoke against slavery a century before our Civil War.

What Does Peace Mean?

Pastor Joyce Swingle launches our newest Advent Series preaching on Isaiah 9:1-7. She mentions the Armor of God, which we've covered in the past (www.WestchesterChapel.org/Armor) and her husband Rich Swingle's sketch on Gideon (Sheepish). Pastor Jim Warren opens, and Pastor Linda Warren prays over the message.

Essence: Exploring the Human-Horse Relationship

We got to connect with Ivy Schexnayder and her mom, Barbara Novak Schexnayder, when they came to NYC recently to screen Ivy's short film Essence: Exploring the Horse-Human Relationship at the Equus Film Festival.
The film is narrated by Rebekah Stought, who was a student at the Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers Camp a couple of summers ago. She was coached for voice over by John Fornof, who directed me in The Dragon and the Raven in London for The Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty. Rebekah also performs in the film, as does Sarah Olmstead of the short film One Day, in which I performed and served as acting coach.
You can watch Essence for free right now. Check it out below or here, and rejoice that it was playing at a NYC film festival:

The Psalm of Joseph

This Sunday I'll be doing a dramatic reading of the story of Joseph as Eva teaches on the passages for our Leadership Bible Study at 9:30am. Shortly after Eva invited me to do that I came across Psalm 105, which includes an ode to Joseph. I planned to memorize and perform the psalm, but it quickly became clear there's too much material to cover in one study, so Eva and I agreed to leave it out. Instead I recorded it to build anticipation for Joseph's amazing story...

Saved by Grace

If you're looking for a good film this evening we discovered a Thanksgiving-themed film on PureFlix featuring Muse Watson, who I performed with in A Christmas Snow. The Thanksgiving film is called Saved by Grace

It shows the power of a relationship with Christ to carry us through the greatest tragedies life may throw our way. The Lord certainly gives us much to be thankful for, even when the world may have thrown us grievous challenges.

Muse had addressed some of my students and mentioned that early in your career you need to be yourself, but once you're established you can branch out and do character work. In this film he plays a homeless man and brings a great character to life! I guess with 91 IMDb credits to his name he's earned the right to play other types!

Parental warning: Some intense scenes, break ins and smooching.
Here's the Dove review: Saved by Grace.

Thankful for Much!

I was recently a guest writer for Miranda A. Uyeh's To Be a Person. I wrote the piece before and after my performance at a chapel for my alma mater, George Fox University. You can read the article here.

The university sent me the footage of that chapel, and what happened is the number one thing I'm grateful for this year.

Fellowship with Jesus: Transfigured

I open this morning's service at Westchester Chapel with reflections on this A.W. Tozer quote:
Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers meeting together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become "unity" conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.
Joyce prays and shares announcements.

Pastor Jim Warren preaches on Matthew 17:1-8, the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ, Moses and Elijah. His opening includes Isaiah 6:1-6Revelation 1:9-18, and Revelation 4.
