Singing together in a room with great acoustics does so much for the soul! It always renews me and fills me up to go forth with the simple singing of a song like “It is Well” or “Amazing Grace”
This boat, takes singing to a completely new level, one I’d love to be a part of someday soon!
Here is what the boat’s creator had to say:
Sometimes celebrities seem detached with “the normal people’s” world with the tabloids, arrests, and drama that they have. Yet, the world seems like a small place and the Internet helps make amazing things happening. One beautiful “little thing” happened to Zach Sobiech from a long list of celebrities and friends. Here is the description from the YouTube video.
Zach Sobiech is 17 years old and diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that takes the lives of a large percent of its childhood victims. Given only months to live, Zach turned to music to say goodbye. His song “Clouds” spread, and soon, Zach’s message was heard across the country. We wanted to help Zach spread his message, and bring awareness to increase support for finding a cure. So, we asked our friends to help out…they did.
You’ve seen TED talks.
The slogan of TED is:
“Ideas worth spreading.”
What idea could be greater than the Gospel?
So what do sermons have to do with TED talks?
Normally, I am against the overuse of cameras in public. In fact, I do not like the idea of Google Glass and the issues of being unknowingly filmed at any embarrassing or condemning moment. That being said, this Good Samaritan biker not only did a great public service for this older gentleman, but he caught it all on tape for the world to see!
The connection to our faith is simple and the technology that brings you into this touching story simply is a marvel, seeing as we did not have this kind of access even a couple of years ago. (Youth pastors, this may be a great sermon illustration.)
The video we have after the bump is simply fascinating for any geek that loves anything with science, so enjoy.
That being said, this video of a wet washcloth in space demonstrates something so much deeper. For Christians in the 21st century, where we have exegeted every part of the Bible ten times over, we have lost the mystery of God. Some can still see the beauty of our Creator in nature, people, and other parts of this world, but it is all so… normal. This video brings about some beauty from the mystery that God has created that is just at the limit of our reach.
I love when I find cute things that people have come up with on Etsy or at an art show.
Check out this awesome book that you can make customized with your kid’s names!
I did my name “Seth” for an example, look how they took their imagination and ran with it!
I am always trying to come up with some new ways to make food for the kids.
Since they are into mac & cheese and pasta of any kind…I’m really excited to see these that you can make at home.
The first time I saw this, I thought:
I don’t think you can get much cheesier than this, can you?
You be the judge:
- 66,000 compostable and biodegradable cups
- 15,000 liters of colored rainwater
- 1 kg of vegetable dye
- more than 100 volunteers
- 62 hours of work
That’s what it took to create this beautiful water mosaic, the world largest of its kind at 3,600 square feet.
Canadian artist Belo created this stunning water mosaic to create awareness of the importance of clean drinking water.
Who knew that water wasn’t just life, but art as well?
Amazing art from artist Liu Bolin, who makes himself one with his surroundings.
Check out these fantastic pictures, some of which have taken days to realize.
