NOOMA Rain | 001 Rob Bell

December 21st, 2009

Things don’t always work out the way we want them to, or the way we think they will. Sometimes we don’t even see it coming. We get hit with some form of pain out of nowhere leaving us feeling desperate and helpless. That’s the way life is. Still, it makes us wonder how God can let these things happen to us. How God can just stand by and watch us suffer. Where is God when it really hurts? Maybe God is actually closer to us than we think. Maybe it’s when we’re in these situations, where everything seems to be falling apart, that God gets an opportunity to remind us of how much he really loves us.

NOOMA Tomato | 022 Rob Bell

December 19th, 2009

Hello everyone,

I am sorry for the lack of updates lately, but now that I am done my finals and on vacation, I hope to start posting again on a regular basis.

In this post I would like to present you a very interesting small clip that we saw and discussed about yesterday at Church during the Friday Youth Metting. It is named NOOMA Tomato | 022 Rob Bell.

NOOMA films are created and produced by Flannel, a nonprofit organization. They are a group of people committed to giving everyone a fresh and compelling look at the teachings of Jesus.

Since I really love their work, starting from now, I will start publish daily at noon a post containing one of their clip in order to share those teachings with you. At the moment there is 24 of them.

NOOMA Tomato | 022 Rob Bell:

We all get consumed with ourselves; sometimes we’re not even aware of it. We learn from a young age that life is about winning and impressing. We pick up that our worth and value come from how good, how smart, and how skilled we are. So, we twist things in our favor, making us look like we have it all together. Every day we have the choice to prop up these false ideas about ourselves or to let go of them. Jesus invites these parts of us to die, the parts of us that tell us our worth comes from the things we say and do. Maybe it’s only when we let these things die, that we truly begin to live.
