We kicked off a new series at our church (New Hope) entitled, “Six-Forty Series”. It centers around the various kinds of spiritual disciplines that help to nurture our relationship with God. The reason we are calling it “Six-Forty” is because of the format we are using to communicate timeless truths.
A few months ago, a friend of mine (Jeff Shinabarger) told me about how some Japanese architects were creatively formatting their design presentations to make them more focused, concise, and memorable. These design presentations, known as Pecha Kucha (which comes from a Japanese term for the sound of conversation), are 6 minutes 40 seconds PowerPoint presentations that contain 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each.
I thought this would be a refreshing way to communicate a Sunday message so we adapted the format to share insights into the spirituals disciplines. Following this particular 6 minutes 40 seconds presentation entitled “Simple”, our community of faith spent some time in group activities designed to engage thought and conversation around this week’s focus.
Click here to hear this message on the New Hope podcast (iTunes required) and feel free to follow along with the embeded presentation below. You will have to time each slide at 20 seconds increments if you want the live feel.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts about this podcast!
