THE MAKING OF THE MOVIE

LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE!

I am often more moved by “The Making of the Movie” than by the movie itself. I find an ache and longing, sometimes with tears when I see a collective effort bring forth excellence, in creativity, for a greater impact.

After watching clips from Saving Private Ryan I began viewing the making of this film which won five Academy Awards.

 

WW II soldiers who were interviewed for the production.

Interviews were also done with actors, script writers, costuming, props, sound, lighting, and camera people.

Irish soldiers composed the film’s troops.

Old landing craft were found and refurbished for the movie.

A town was built, then carefully blown up to create staging.

It was fascinating to hear Spielberg’s production genius.

And I absolutely love the music by John Williams!

 

I am compelled by creativity, excellence, and collaboration for a greater cause.

I am moved when I discover the intense teamwork which brings forth a great production.

Amazing things can be achieved when people bring their gifts, passions and pull together!

How I long for the Church of Jesus Christ to be known for creative excellence and collaborative “productions”  which will gain the gaze of the world!

For this I pray!

RADIATING AUTHORITY

LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE!

It was around 1990 and the government was talking about expanding the Yakima, Washington Firing Range. I lived next door and was not sure this was in the best interest of either our military or our community and wrote a letter to the editor expressing my cautions. The military leadership at Fort Lewis, Washington read my editorial and invited me to come and talk. I brought a few other local pastors with me. 

We were greeted hospitably at Fort Lewis  We met a man that still leaves a strong impression on me when I think of him, Commandant Lieutenant General Calvin A. H. Waller. I have never met a man that exuded such confidence. The man radiated with authority! He cordially listened to our concerns and shared with us his perspectives on the value of expanding the Firing Range in Yakima. We shared lunch with hundreds of soldiers in the mess while General Waller mixed with the soldiers.

You may learn more about this man at http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/cawaller.htm

I was struck by a comment General Waller made, saying in essence. “I believe that expanding the Firing Center is in the military’s best interest. I will ask for the expansion of the center. But I am a soldier. If I am refused I will salute and say, ‘Yes sir.’”

General Waller was a man loaded with authority. Thousands of men, tons of machinery and probably a few tactical nukes were at his command, yet he knew the limits of his authority and that his authority came from above him. 

There is a pressing need for leadership with competence and character today. We need it from the top down in government. It is imperative in business, education and media. It is most critical in the Church of Jesus. Without it in our families our culture is toast.

My encouragement to you today is to pray into and exercise the leadership role(s) the Lord has assigned you. 

“For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me.

I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes;

and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes.

I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it” (Luke 7:8).

ONE ANOTHERING

Do you practice the “gathered together” passages?

The sheep are gathered in the flock

The bricks are gathered into a building

The children are gathered in the family

The soldiers are gathered into an army 

A seductive philosophy of individualism has pillaged us. We separate ourselves, saying to other Lovers of Christ – people with powerful gifts, callings and perspectives, “I don’t need you!”  (1 Cor 12:21)

Be encouraged by some of the dozens of “ONE ANOTHER” passages. Fortify yourself and be cemented into relationship with other believers:

Romans 12:10  Honor one another above yourselves.

Romans 12:16  Live in harmony with one another

Galatians 5:13  Serve one another in love.

Ephesians 4:32  Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Ephesians 5:21  Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Colossians 3:16  Admonish one another with all wisdom

1 Thessalonians 5:11  Encourage one another and build each other up

1 Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
