40

I have to preach this morning at Stromness Baptist Church – they have been doing a series on Elijah and left off with his 40 day walk. I thought the 40 day fast of Jesus would add another dimension to the story. Yesterday I put together the images of “40” by Simon Smith. I know you can buy a CD with it already made but i didnt have time. I dropped them into iMovie, gave them 5 seconds each. Jonny has also made a version of this.

What about the Music?

Scott Bader-Saye at Peacemeal used Snow Patrol’s “Run” for the music (read comments) and Mark Fletcher used “Sulpher Man” by the Doves. But as for me and my house, we . . . i mean I . .. added the last 4 minutes of the freely downloadable track from Jap Jap called Blue Shimmery Fall.

  • When I used these images as a lenten staff meeting devo, I used The Great Inversion by The Cobalt Season.
    Andrew have you considered sharing your video? Have you considered sharing the slides without music? Or are you trying to respect the materials for sale by not offering something in video form? Where do you draw that line between giving away mostly someone else’s work and the desire to resource, share, and help others?

  • Hi,
    I used REM – Everybody Hurts, for the 1st Sunday in Lent and a Baptist Ministers Retreat. They are awesome cartoons.
