We here at the 9 words community have had an incredible year. We’ve seen our readership double from the previous year, with 9 words now speaking into 3,000 cities in over 160 nations around the world. So we thought, what better way to celebrate a great year than to finish it off with a film done by our own community?
As part of this film, our community was asked the question – who is Jesus? Each person was given a 2 inch piece of paper with a shape on it. Using precious items from their own lives, each person was to recreate the 2 inch shape on a 22 inch piece of paper. We asked our community to share their heart on a 22 square inch space, and then to offer it as a sacrifice to God in worship.
This was a beautiful process. Our community used everything from drumsticks to pokemon cards, typography to intricate drawings, rocks to smudged coffee. In the background of the video, you’ll see just a few of the artistic expressions each community member employed.
Next, we chose a day where would all gather together. And here was the beauty. We took time for reflection, I got to serve communion to almost 90 people, and finally we worked together on the product you see on the stage – putting together the image of Christ.
To everyone at 9words, thank you for a fantastic year, and for making this an incredible experience. And if you’d like to see more from 9words, go here – http://9words.ca
