I was inspired by this post on Pastors.com that got me thinking about my method of study and preaching using my Apple products. Then, earlier in the week I had a conversation about it with my former boss at my former church.

I won’t spoil the ending, but this article from Jon Negroni over at Mashable is worth a read. Negroni spent one year untangling the secret world hidden deep within Pixar films.

Upcoming Series

June 25, 2013 — Leave a comment

We are starting a new teaching series in July at CCF called “Q&A.” We will be tackling the questions:

Who am I, really?
What is the Christian response to same-sex relationships?
What does God say about money?
Can faith and science co-exist?

In addition to the regular teaching, we will be taking questions live via text (479-259-1776), Twitter (@ccfss – hashtag #q&a), on Facebook (ccfsiloam), or via e-mail (qna@ccfconnect.com).

I put together this teaser trailer for the series. I made in in After Effects 6 and relied heavily on the Element plug-in from Video Copilot. It’s a little long and I’m not in love with the final product, but since video isn’t my main bag (or even my side bag), I’m content to live with it.

Enjoy!
