Guess what I'm having a hard time finding videos of ?
Try stuff with these key words:
"Fire Staff Dancer"
You know, normal stuff we find in everyday Street Life? What inspired my album that took me more than a decade to complete?

The thing is, the site that provides the Royalty-Free clip was doing a promotional deal in partnership with CT reader to pitch to Churches. Duh, that makes sense, since Christianity Today is aimed at Christians, and more and more Churches are using multimedia production all the time. But Video Blocks is just a mainstream site for Multimedia production items, not specifically "Christian" in nature. And yet, I get the feeling that it's content is more than a bit sanitized, and mindful of the fact that certain people will be browsing through who don't wish to find anything "offensive."

You mean to tell me with all the reforms in how we do Church in the past 40+ years, the Calvary Chapels, Vineyards, "Seekers Services," Emergents, etc. etc. we still haven't gotten over ourselves enough to connect with the real world around us, yet? Church is still a place to retreat into for 90 minutes each week and not be confronted with reality?
How about this for your Churches next weekend services? Some video clips of Obama's drone strikes in Pakistan. Or tell the story of the 16-year-old American Citizen who was killed in a drone strike in Yemen?
Interferes with your worship?
Better do a self- examining reality check on which god it is you're worshiping.
