The Open Table - Donald Miller - Sample Clip

I watched this clip and found lots of good stuff to think about. Especially the comments people make re: their perceptions of God and Christians. Funny and sobering at the same time.

***
A couple years ago Donald Miller interviewed about twenty-five friends and asked them each five questions.

1. What did you think of God/Christians before you became a Christian?

2. When did you realize there was a dark or hard side to life?

3. When did you realize there was a dark or hard side to yourself?

4. What did it look like when God broke into your world?

5. What does your life look like now?

He says, "We put together a little book that takes a similar journey, just processing the idea of Jesus from an outsider's perspective. The book is called “The Open Table” and so is the DVD...I hope they end up being used by folks who have questions about faith and specifically Christianity."

Here's a clip from the DVD, answering the question “What did you think of God/Christians before you became a Christian?”

Interesting! It reminds me even of kids who have grown up around the church nowdays. I think that popular secular culture is FAR stronger than we assume. Thanks for posting this. (It was nice to see Mt. Hood in the background.)

I often wonder what "unchurched" people think when they walk into a service. I think they would be very confused much of the time. I like the man's comments about the singing,lol! Very interesting video clip.
