Short Film/ DVD - 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.
Nooma Trees #3
Rob Bell - Short Film/DVD -
We want to know why we are here. If our lives really matter, How our religion is relevant to this life.
Nooma Sunday # 4
Rob Bell - 1 Session - Short Film/ DVD - Why do we do the things we do? Why do we go to church or give money away? Because we’re supposed to or because we think God needs it? Do we honestly put on our best clothes for an hour once a week, stand and sit at all the right times, and sing all the appropriate songs for God’s sake, or because it’ll make us look better to the world around us? We’re tired of all the empty rituals and routines. And so is God. God hates it when we go through hollow religious routines. Out of feeling of duty or obligation. God doesn’t want the meaningless rituals. God wants our hearts.
Nooma Kickball #6
Rob Bell 1 Session - Short Film/DVD -We always think we know what’s missing from our lives in order to really make us happy, don’t we? If only I had that car, or that job, or if only I could lose those 15lbs, then I’d be happy. Really? How often do we want something only to find out that it wasn’t that great after all? Sometimes we ask God for things and if he doesn’t deliver right away, we start questioning whether God Really understands or cares.
Nooma Luggage # 7
Rob Bell - 1 Session - Short Film/DVD –Maybe a friend turned their back on you. Maybe someone you loved betrayed you. We all have wounds and we end up carrying around these things that people have done to us for weeks, months and sometimes even years. It isn’t always easy to forgive these people and after a while these can get really heavy. So the only way to feel better seems to be some how get back at the people who hurt us, to get revenge. But does revenge ever truly satisfy? Maybe forgiving isn’t something you do for someone else to let them off the hook. Maybe forgiveness is about you. God didn’t create you to carry these wounds around. God created you to be free.
Rob Bell - 1 Session - Short Film/DVD –Believing in God is important, but what about God believing in us? Believing that we can actually be the kind of people we were meant to be. People of Love, compassion, peace forgiveness, and hope.
Nooma Bullhorn # 9
Rob Bell - 1 Session - Short Film/DVD - The Best way for us to show our love for God is actually by loving other people no matter how hard it sometimes is. Maybe it’s the only way.
Nooma Lump # 10
Rob Bell - 1 Session - Short Film/DVD - A lot of us have done things in our lives that we’re ashamed of. Some are small things, and some of us have really big and devastating things. Some of us even have things that people close to us don’t know about. Personal junk that we keep to ourselves so we don’t have to deal with it. But no matter how big our junk is, no matter how much what we’ve done has impacted the way other people feel about us or how we feel about ourselves, it hasn’t changed how God feels about us. God loves us, he always has and always will, and there’s nothing we can do to change that.
