easter 2010

it is my honor to once again post these videos by my friend leo chen. i’ve looked for videos to retell the story of easter online and have only found stuff with printed words hurtling at you through the screen. this series produced by leo still moves me in new ways each time i watch them. individually they are insightful and quirky. as an arc, they are layered and profound.

on easter, meditate with me on the promise of a new day and age.

facebook folks will have to go to the original posts.

pause…easter day

periodically, i stop and rest. and give pause. rest, reflection and refreshment.

sometimes there is something bigger than me that forces me to stop. 2 things this week:

i’ve been reflecting on the upcoming birth of my baby girl….in my faith, we give thanksgiving offerings as a sign of gratitude for such a gift. such a grace. i’ve decided to give to speak up, an international human rights organization committed to the eradication of modern slavery and human trafficking. this is a gift for a better world for my girl…and a lot of other baby girls.

once again, here is the video for speak up:

Speak Up has asked my friend jonathan wu to film and create videos to help promote their ongoing efforts. he also hopes to make a short documentary about Speak Up’s work and capture a bit of life in Bangkok. his trip will last 10 days, and he’s seeking financial support. If you’re inclined to give, his goal is to raise $1,500 to cover travel, housing and equipment costs. There are two ways you can donate:

1) Send a check payable to SPEAK UP by April 14th to:

Speak Up
PO Box 5595
Pasadena, CA 91117
(write Jonathan Wu in the memo section)

2) If you’re on Facebook, go to http://apps.facebook.com/causes/252674 and donate through
Speak Up’s Causes page. Again, by April 14th if possible.

Speak Up is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, making your donation tax-deductible. Please send me an email and let me know if you’ve donated, as this will help keep track of the amount being raised. also, i am interested in matching your donation to double your giving power. please touch bases with me on that.

second……

holy week draws to a close as easter is here….the highest holy days in the christian faith when we focus on the last week of jesus’ life before his death and resurrection. we start off with his jubilant entry into jerusalem, celebrate with the last supper and communion before we descend into his betrayal, trial, torture, crucifixion and death. usually, stories that end in death….end. but the story was not over yet. this was only friday…..sunday is here.

for the past week, I posted a video a day to retell the story. these videos were made by leo chen, a bsg fan, videographer and movie maker in my church….of leo-graphy, my friend leo fame.

here are the outakes….laughter and joy that embraces the new life of the day!:
