“Rock in the Road” Animation Short by Adventist University Students Goes Viral

This great and encouraging video short was featured on the front page of Vimeo as a “staff pick”. Pass the blessing…

In a faraway land, a king governed his realm so well that his people were in want of nothing. As the years passed, the king noticed his people had become lazy and selfish, so he devised a simple test to show them the value of others. As a young boy unknowingly faces the challenge, the future of the kingdom is built on the strength of his character.

In the fall of 2007, Southern Adventist University’s animation students set out to create a three-minute short film based on a simple parable. This artistic venture, intended to be completed during one year, turned into a five-year journey. The result is the twelve-minute animated short, “Rock in the Road.”

“It is not wisdom, power, or fame that make a kingdom great. But a willingness to help others.”

The Replacement Gods (streaming for a limited time only!)

In light of the recent tragic events in Colorado, Little Light Studios have, by the grace of God,
opened up free streaming of their documentary, “The Replacement Gods”

 

Description:
Every culture since the dawn of time has told fantastical tales of heroes that have saved humanity from some unspeakable evil. The effect these mythological tales had on humanity when the true Savior Jesus Christ arrived on Earth was devastating, many didn’t recognize Him because they were seeking a much different hero. Did the Devil blind us from Christ’s first coming by flooding the world with counterfeits of God’s prophesies? Since Super Heroes in comics are based on classical myths, is the Devil blinding us again from the greatest supernatural event the world will ever witness, Christ’s second coming?

Superman, Batman, Thor, and many more make their appearances and unmask their true colors in this ever so clear evidentiary documentary. This should be the last Super Hero movie you ever watch!

Devotional- Who Am I Really?

WHO AM I . . . REALLY?

day 1

God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature so they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, and, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.” Genesis 1:26, first part, The Message

“Who are you?” It’s one of the most common questions in life. “I’m Anna Perez.”

Is that an answer? Well, yes and no. Often people who ask this question only want to know what our name is. But as we move through the years that end childhood and begin adulthood, the question grows more urgent.

Who am I? I am a son . . . a daughter . . . a friend . . . a student . . . an artist . . . a maker . . . a scientist . . . a technologist . . . a Christian . . . a Seventh-day Adventist.

This year, we are going on a journey through time and space. In the first quarter, we will peek in on patriarchs and wise women, on kings and priests and servant girls, as we seek to understand Our Source by looking more deeply into the biblical stories of the early people on this earth, those who first learned who God is and how to relate to Him.

During the second quarter we will visit people from the centuries as they pass, and learn about the heritage and roots of our faith and of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination.

Then we will seek the source and the heart of our most cherished values by studying the 28 Fundamental Beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination throughout the third and fourth quarters.

Along the way, we will attempt to discover some answers to that perennial question, who am I really? Or at least we’ll learn some questions to ask ourselves and God as we seek to uncover those answers. Sometimes the best answers come through the questions themselves.

As we journey through the centuries, we will journey to the heart of God . . . and to our own truest, deepest selves.

Who am I? I am a beloved child of God. I didn’t just happen. God made me because He wanted me.

Creator of the cosmos, show me how to know You, not just to know about You, but to really know You at the heart level. Show me how to know that You know me—the real me, the me that is so hidden that often I don’t see it myself. As we walk together through the hills and valleys of this year, show me more and more how to truly be the me You are creating me to be.
