Kingdom Sighting: Neighborhood Film Company

A reader (Thanks Rebecca!) sent us some information on the Neighborhood Film Company. Visit their website to see what they’re up to, and we think it will bless you. Here’s a little bit of information about their work:

Neighborhood Film Company (NFCo) is a creative production company that mentors and employs adults in recovery to reverse cycles of poverty. By partnering with Project H.O.M.E. (PH) and Working Film Establishment (WF) – NFCo. equips residents recovering from homelessness and addiction with the necessary skills to effectively work on mainstream commercials, web adverts, promos, music videos, and short/long form narratives. From Pre-Production through Post-Production, PH Residents work hand-in-hand with Industry Professionals, thus assuring that quality is never sacrificed and creativity and growth are constantly cultivated. Ultimately, NFCo’s goal is to create competitive visual stories while transforming individuals from a life of marginalization to a life of dreaming, creating, and thriving.

On the Language of “Revolution”

Nick Thompson via Compfight Question: The banner of your website and the thrust of much of your teaching focuses on “revolution.” While I can see a radical call in some of the sayings of Jesus, especially if he were addressing upper-middle class North Americans, I wonder if attaching revolutionary language to his teaching seems a…

There I referred to the fact that we are living between D-Day (the point at which WW2 was won) and V-Day (the point at which WW2 was officially over). Another way Scripture expresses this reality is by referring to Jesus-followers…
