I had a good friend tell me that I needed to write a book about this experience. Then I saw a trailer about tiny houses that inspired me to make a documentary. Documentaries are in great need. Seeing that something good is happening in the world is essential. Followers of Jesus seeing other followers of Jesus living out their faith in a meaningful, effective way is important. So many are discouraged because all they see is infighting, gossip, conflict, pettiness and more.
Don’t worry–if I happen to visit a community that isn’t all that I expected–I won’t expose it! But I am 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% sure that the communities I have selected are ones that are exemplary.
I have never made a documentary before, but I do have an android phone that can take videos. I love to interview people. I enjoy thinking about what might interest people. I need to get some disclaimer forms. I want to find someone to edit the footage. But I just feel strongly that this is going to happen.
Writing a book starting with an ebook should be easy enough. I am not looking for perfection–just interesting stories mixed with resources that will help inspire people to create or join community. I will study the book, Intentional Christian Communities and see what I can do to add to what that book shared. All books on intentional Christian communities are important.
If you have any ideas on how to make documentaries, let me know. I am sure I will be doing research on that topic. If you know someone who might like to edit–let me know that also.
