When words aren't enough...

We put so much clout on "words." Yet, the words we speak and the message we intend isn't synonymous with the words people hear and more importantly, often not synonymous with the message we intended for them to hear.

What happens then when we attempt communicate a message that is riveted with present-eternal significance?

What do we do when words aren't enough...?

How would we communicate the message of Christ and the Story of Scripture without words...?

GREAT video! Sometimes words just get in the way.

I look forward to seeing what's done with "The Loft."

If you substitute the word for "truth" with the word "reality" in the book of John you might get a new perspective for living in the "Spirit" and comunicating without words.

Excellent thought and idea for a communal out-loud reading... as well as a slow churn meditation...

When "truth" is moved from merely a proposition to be defended to a Person-Reality to be engaged, encountered and entered into something powerful begins to happen in our understanding and relationship with such Truth...Not to mention daily expectations.

Thanks for the thought and challenge.

Jerrell I did not understand the last thing you just said here. Can you break it down a little more?
