The Church is On The Move

Somehow that statement will never quite have the same meaning ever again for me.

This is a great little piece of moviemaking... the well-set-up shots, the heavy use of tilt-shift, the awesome choral number, the fact that the church actually drives in front of the lyrics, etc.

The theological issues are more troubling, if you care to think that way: moving the "Church" (I'm ignoring the building/body issue because it's too obvious) over a hundred miles just to "keep it safe for eternity." Nothing about mission, nothing about engaging the culture, nothing about anything except "keeping it safe." Yowza.

But if I'm really being honest, I have to admit I don't care about the theological issues. It's just a good excuse to show a great video.

The fast motion makes it nearly Monty Ptyhon-ish. Sorry, but we all know that a building doesn't make a church, yet it is the people who do, that is Church= body of believers. Did like the video though.

Talk about making a video... wow, lots of work went into this one.
