crowdfunded faith

God enters by a private door into every individual.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


(wired.com)

I caught an interesting story yesterday morning featured on The Federalist.
There seems to be a new sort of Christian feature film concerning the birth and life of Christ riding out
under the radar.

Now I’m familiar with the notion of crowdfudging…
the seemingly innocent pressing of a few little white lies in an attempt to
push the truth…

But crowdfunding was a totally new concept.

Yet when I read the recent story on The Federalist regarding a new app and a Christian film, a film
that was entirely funded by crowdfunding, I was hooked.
The film is entitled The Chosen.

Now according to Wikipedia…
“Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts
of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet. Crowdfunding is a
form of crowdsourcing and alternative finance. In 2015, over US$34 billion was raised
worldwide by crowdfunding.”

So I was now really intrigued reading the following article—so much so that I went to the App store
and uploaded the App to the movie.

I’ve only had a chance to watch just a few brief minutes of the first episode–
but I look forward to watching all the seasons to the fullest.

It seems that Christian film interests now come under the wing of a crow…
And so it must be it…

For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
through my groaning all day long.
For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.
I acknowledged my sin to you,
and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Psalm 32:3-5

  1. Great idea. I will follow the link. Another great idea is micro loans. I made regular small investments in micro loans to women living in third world countries, who had ideas or skills to create salable products. I say investments even though I had no expectation of a return, and just had repayments reinvested in more loans.

    Hmmmm interesting. The internet is being used for good.

    • So it seems— I got the app and if you’re really savvy, you can play it through your TV or watch it on a phone or tablet — pretty nifty— and so far, it seems well fine— and I’m finding the Washington miniseries lacking — even bordering on boring 🧐

        I didn’t get to watch last night because of rehearsal, but I recorded it. It’s sad that the history channel has all the funding to do beautiful productions, yet they are so biased and can’t see the thread that binds us through history. Sad.

      • You might like it but I actually got bored

        I’ll let you know.

        I watched part two this morning and was bored too. They spent a lot of time on Washington’s failures and his faults. Clinton should not be included and this episode seemed To last forever. So I agree.

      • Good— I’m glad I wasn’t skewed or losing all faculties 🤪— I could have picked a wealth of other historians and I find it humorous that they’ve bent over backwards to bring in women of color to look equitable— Colin Powell is about the best expert they’ve got for the entire myopic

  4. Yes God has a private passageway to every person. He knows how we are inside.
