Going home always makes me think about Mars Hill, the church I went to during the later part of high school and when I was home from college. I loved it. The pastor created these short films dealing with all kinds of issues. The films brought the issues down to a more human/ relatable scale. All of the films are available for purchase on the website or you can access them through the marshill website.

Here is a passage for one;


"There’s a popular bumper sticker that reads “God Bless America,” but hasn’t America already been blessed? It’s easy for us to fall into a mindset of viewing “our” world as “the” world, because it’s all we generally see. We’re constantly bombarded with images of the latest styles and models of everything, and it can easily leave us feeling like what we have isn’t enough because we see people that have even more than us. But how does what we have compare to what most people in the world have? Maybe what we have is enough; maybe it’s more than enough. Maybe God has blessed us with everything we have so we can bless and give to others."

Interesting fact; Experts say that in order to provide water, basic health, and nutrition for everyone in the world that the estimate would be around 20 million dollars. That is the same amount Americans spend on ice cream every year.

Thought provoking, isn't it?
