Will Willimon recently attended a brainstorming session in Minneapolis for animate.Faith, a resource for adult groups seeking to begin and foster conversations in local communities about the Christian faith. The session brought together leading Christian voices such as Willimon, Jay Bakker, Nadia Bolz-Weber, Phyllis Tickle, Rachel Held Evans, Eric Elnes, and Jose Morales for a “creative jam” and brainstorming session for animate.Bible, a new DVD resource for adult groups.
Willimon calls Animate, “an exciting new way of introducing the great ideas of the Christian faith in a way that is engaging and informing, as well as entertaining.”
“Here is a great resource for the education and formation of Christians, particularly pitched to those under thirty who may be experiencing the Christian faith for the first time. I had a great time working with the segment on “biblical interpretation,” doing my best to present the material in a way that will be attractive to a new generation of Christians.”
Those interested can see sample sketches and videos of the first Animate series (animate.Faith) or sign up to get updates on the next one which will be released late this summer on Sparkhouse’s site: http://animate.wearesparkhouse.org/animate/the-course/.
