Thus says the LORD:
What wrong did your ancestors find in me that they went far from me,
and went after worthless things,
and became worthless themselves?
Jeremiah 2:5 (NRSV)

“My Morning Run” from You Tube



If you look close, our running friends are climbing the walls of a church. Pursing worthless things? (might hear a part of a objectionable word at end...)

“Atheist Song” from You Tube



Steve Martin contrasts religious pursuits against the atheist lifestyle. What is worthwhile? What is worthless? (Hint: A couch is involved.)

“Making Things Right” from Doogal



The consequences of chasing after candy are listed by these furry talking animals.

“Phase 2” from Furry Vengeance



What if you job is to pursue worthless things? Or destructive things? How will future generations judge our pursuits and the legacy we leave them?


“Uncomfortable Questions” from China Cry



What do you pursue in religious activities? Worthwhile or worthless matters? Does religion or faith make a difference in your life? (Listen for the rare Presbyterian mention in media in this clip.)

Bruce Reyes-Chow Intro at Presbyterian Media Mission GA Lunch 
Monday, July 5, 2010, 09:03 AM - Church, Media
Posted by Administrator
This is my introduction at the Presbyterian Media Mission's General Assembly Media Luncheon.

Past General Assembly Moderator Bruce Reyes-Chow is the founding pastor of the San Francisco Bay area Mission Bay Community Church-a young, urban, quirky, church which uses social media like fish use water.

As moderator, Bruce linked Presbyterians together in real life and through social media with his blog, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.

A father of three and husband of one, he is also the co-host of a weekly podcast, God Complex Radio, and an instructor in Social Media and Ministry at McCormick Theological Seminary.

We are please to welcome Bruce Reyes-Chow live and in person.

Expansion vs. Multiplication 
Sunday, May 9, 2010, 08:00 AM - Sermon, Media
Posted by Administrator

From our Song and Service
A Light to the Heights worship
Sunday, May 9



Bible Reading:
Jeremiah 29:4-7 and
Matthew 8:18-22


This week we consider expanding our influence or multiplying God's love. Based on a chapter in the book, Change the Word Recovering the Message and Mission of Jesus by Mike Slaughter of Ginghamsburg Church in Tipp City, Ohio.

Videos:

“Saving Life”


from the film Rambo




Rambo on WingClips


Rambo doesn't think anyone changes, our missionary thinks they do. How does one spends one's life on themselves? Or on others?

______________________________________________________________



“What Are You Doing?” from I Can Do Bad All by Myself





"Help Them" from I Can Do Bad All by Myself on WingClips



How can you help yourself by helping others? Our main character says he is “repaying his debt.” How does this relate to the Lord's Prayer translation that states: Forgive us our debts as we forgive others?

______________________________________________________________


“A Life That Means Something”


From the film The Way We Get By







"Trailer" and "Greeting the Troops" from The Way We Get By on WingClips

Three senior citizens have greeted nearly one million U.S. troops at a tiny airport in Maine. Note the man who says his life has no meaning to him, and what he does about it. (After the woman walks into the airport.)
