“She” Nooma Preview

19 Aug

Rob Bell releases his next Nooma offering “She” shortly. You can preview the video for a limited time on Facebook here. It is probably only going to be up for another 24 hours or so if his other previews are to go by. This is a fantastic video – Nooma says:

We didn’t have anything to do with our birth. We are all here because some woman somewhere gave us life. Her pain, her effort, for our life. And when a mother gives like that to a child, she is showing us what God is like. But sometimes this part of God’s nature is overlooked. A lot of us are comfortable with male imagery for God. But what about female imagery for God? Is God limited to a gender? Or does God transcend and yet include what we know as male and female? Maybe if we were more aware of the feminine imagery for God we would have a better understanding of who God is and what God is like.

    i wasn’t so impressed by this one, not by the content as such but just the way it was shot.

    Still a good effort all round 🙂
