Worship Idea – I Don’t Belong Here

It was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; that I know very well.

My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes beheld my unformed substance. In your book were written all the days that were formed for me, when none of them as yet existed.

Psalm 139

Some of my photography friends have been discussing this type of filmography and we’re exploring the possibility of having a go at it with real people.  This video was used as an example of how powerful it can be as an art form.  Needless to say, it speaks very powerfully about issues of body image, our relationship to others and our self-worth.

  1. Great video – would be interested in having a go at something substantial.

  2. Very powerful stuff. And a great art form.

    Yes, this could speak powerfully about body image and the like. It could equally be viewed as a dialogue about how, for example, sinners are accepted – or otherwise – by some in the church today.

  3. julz – I agree. I think it is time for me to break out of the house with my camera and take some shots. Then I can have a little go at putting something together.

    Do you have any ideas?

    The other one that was thrown into the melting pot was this one using real people. Not as relevant to this blog though.

  4. So moving… really reminds me of an animation a Russian friend showed me (if it is a bit pinker/lighter!)

  5. The Mustard Seed – Brilliant point. We’re not very good at letting people who don’t look/feel/smell/behave like us join the party.

    Footprintsofayeti – Brilliant!
