Communicating Visually

You have probably heard of the phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” There are times when one simple and poignant picture can tell a story just as well as, if not better, than a story with a thousand words.

There is something about visually seeing things that captures the imagination.

Since we are all so different, we will focus in on different parts of the picture or video. We will interpret things from our perspectives and experiences. I am just amazed how God can use the arts and the media to communicate a message.

I am hoping and praying that we will be able to see more people within our HMCC churches raised up who will use their gifts and talents with the arts and media to share the message of the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Check out this video which was made by Sussex Safer Roads. It is a message about the importance wearing seatbelts. When I first watched it, it was so powerful that it left me speechless. In fact, I was so mesmerized by it that I had to watch it several times.

It is a powerful video with a powerful message.

What would it be like if we can produce a powerful video with the most powerful message of all – the Gospel?
