Someone Sang This Today At Church...

...and I really do NOT usually (or ever) say things like this, but it really seemed like it was sang just for me.

I also have never quoted Twila Paris, but...hey...

I Will Listen
by Twila Paris

Hard as it seems
Standing in dreams,
Where is the dreamer now?
Wonder if I
Wanted to try,
Would I remember how?
I don't know the way to go from here,
But I know that I have made my choice,
And this is where I stand
Until He moves me on
And I will listen to His voice.

This is the faith,
Patience to wait,
When there is nothing clear.
Nothing to see,
Still we believe
Jesus is very near.
I can not imagine what will come,
But I've already made my choice.
And this is where I stand
Until He moves me on,
And I will listen to His voice

Could it be that He is only waiting there to see
If I will learn to love the dreams that He has dreamed for me.
Can't imagine what the future holds,
But I've already made my choice.
And this is where I stand
Until He moves me on,
And I will listen to His voice.

Seems, Madam? Nay, it is. I know not seems.

"Ironically -- and frustratingly -- the standards might even be higher for a first-time writer than for an established pro. I believe it's human nature for quality to be 'read into' the work of a big name writer, and for problems to be 'read into' the work of a beginner. And a big name writer can survive one or two mediocre drafts, whereas a first-time writer will never get another chance. This seems unfair, but in a way it's not."

Rich Mullins Oct. 21, 1955- Sept. 19, 1997

I was just reminded that Rich Mullins was killed 10 years ago today. I was raised in a Christian home, and Rich Mullins' music was a large part of that. It was nearly nine years ago that I decided to put away childish things and take the Christian faith seriously. There is no doubt in my mind that his death was a huge part of that. He was the real deal. I knew if he could die, I could die. I had a pretty good idea how he would be remembered, and I knew exactly where he went.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
-1 Corinthians 13:11

Sometimes I think of Abraham,
How one star he saw had been lit for me.
He was a stranger in this land,
and I am that no less than he.
And on this road to righteousness,
sometimes the climb can be so steep.
I may falter in my steps,
But never beyond your reach.

Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You.
I will seek You in the morning,
And I will learn to walk in Your ways,
And step by step You'll lead me,
And I will follow You all of my days.
-Rich Mullins
"Sometimes by Step"

Framing

It is the duty of Christian filmmakers to challenge cultural misconceptions of Christians and Christianity. Among the most damaging of these misconceptions is the belief that Christians are ignorant and anti-intellectual. Therefore, it is imperative that our films stand up to the scrutiny of educated audiences. Ideals and inspirational messages are insufficient. Our work must also be accurate, intellectual, and of literary merit.

Hey, John

For our next film, can we have everyone dress relatively normal? It was weird enough asking people for Confederate memorabilia. Now, I'm asking people for a yellow full-body spandex unitard.

By the way, we may have to settle for red and black...or possibly white, but dyed yellow. We'll make it work.

Red and Black are not bad colors though.

To Answer Your Question...

Yes, we did.

Well...that and the Bible book.

Alright, Santry.

Let's get it done.

MACBETH:
If we should fail?

LADY MACBETH:
We fail!
But screw your courage to the sticking-place,
And we'll not fail.

How's that for cryptic?
