The Hand That Rocks The Cradle . . .

 In 1865, poet W.R. Wallace wrote this line that has become a truism:The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Is the Hand That Rules The WorldAnd while he probably didn’t think about it, world evangelism turns on his quote.  Making disciples of kids around the world is the most strategic part of the great commission. And yet, a scant amount of time, money, prayer, and disciple-making goes into reaching the kids of the world. This is true in spite of the fact that studies show that 80% of people come to…See More

Some quotes on visual story....

"According to neurological research, the brain is able to process print on a page at a rate of approximately 100 bits per second. But the brain can process a picture at approximately 1 billion bits per second."
Mark Batterson, National Community Church

Ingmar Bergman, Swedish filmmaker, said, "Facts go straight to the head; stories go straight to the heart."

Madeleine L'Engle, author of A Wrinkle in Time, said, "Jesus was not a theologian, but a God who told stories.

Syrian movie on Apostle Paul

Hey, saw this news item. Does anyone know about this? This is a cut and paste from an email blast from Joel Rosenberg.

More than 1,100 senior Syrian government officials, journalists, business leaders and religious leaders -- Muslim, Catholic and evangelical Christian -- will attend the gala premiere of a major motion picture entitled "DAMASCUS," written,… Continue

Hey, Jeff, it's Mike Joens. Joined the network yesterday. Clyde told me you were a member and suggested that I contact you. You remember my Theo project, right? I know I've shown it to you over the years (i've shown it to everyone). Anyway, the very first Theo cartoon is in the can (called Theo's Good News) and you may view it here on the network (it's 4 1/2 minutes in length). Let me know what you think once you see it. We are busy on the second one, called Saving Faith. Love to hear from you. God's best, Mike
