Waiting…

Brad M. Griffin | Dec 20, 2011

During the season of Advent this year some folks from my church who make films decided to create a short video for our community to reflect on. Picking up the theme “waiting”, they grabbed some folks from the congregation and developed this piece. It has been a powerful tool for reflection across these four weeks.

As we debriefed it together last Sunday morning, I was struck by the different ways folks interpreted the waiting that was (or wasn’t) happening in this video. We’re all waiting for something. Perhaps the question is how will we wait?

In these last few moments of Advent, I hope this might probe a bit about the waiting in your own soul.

PS, this was developed free, and is free to be used if it’s helpful in your own context. Be sure to give credit appropriately. I bet Sam and Benji would love to hear how you use it, too.
