3 minutes to live


Here's a link to a very evocative short film I was made aware of from tallskinnykiwi. It begs the question . . 'what would you do if you had three minutes to live'?

I enjoyed this post from Len at Next Reformation. As a missionally-minded pilgrim living in a foreign context, I am constantly imagining what a contextually creative space might look like for people in Ireland which sensitizes them to God's love and activity in their lives. Len has captured a few thoughts in this post (including some from my friend Rev. Ray Simpson) that can significantly inform any such attempt as described above . . as we'll be trying to do with the Ceili De Network this autumn.
