I think I’m the last person on the planet to see this movie. I spent the six weeks of the summer holidays in non-English speaking countries. Avatar was so big that it was showing in every country we went to. However my German was no where near good enough to even bother trying to keep up. And life was so busy after we got back to Australia it seemed like we’d miss out.
But because Avatar is one of the biggest movies ever, it was still showing almost every where last weekend, so I managed to get along to a session. I’d heard so much about it, I thought I’d be disappointed. I wasn’t. The movie was visually spectacular and held my attention all the way through, despite being a very lengthy flick.
A lot has been said about Avatar. So instead of giving an in-depth review, I’m going to give my impressions in point form. That way I’m going to cover a lot, but in less detail. If you want to explore any of these ideas further, that’s what the comments are for. Let’s do this thing!
Here are some random thoughts I have after Moore College Mission 2009 at MerrylandsAnglican. They’re not in any kind of order, just putting it out there. I also attended a youth event run by Liverpool City Council on Saturday, so I’ll add my thoughts about that here as well. (MTC = Moore Theological College)
The final Mission Vodcast for 2009. Last night at The Vine, the youth ministry at Merrylands Anglican, a group of us College students teamed up with the youth group leaders and ran sessions on things like the internet, friendship, movies and fashion. I got the chance to not only interview the leaders, but also a few of the youth.
It’s a bit late, but here’s Thursday’s Mission Vodcast!
Today we look at what the Primary Team have been up to on mission. My special guest is my good friend Tash Small.
On the first Sunday of Moore College Mission, I preached at the 6pm service at Merrylands Anglican Church. The topic was “Are Christians Judgemental?”. Before the sermon I played a video clip about Westboro Baptist Church. I’ve placed the video after the jump if you’d like to watch it. Then, standing at the back of the Church, I shouted into a megaphone that everyone needed to repent, putting on my best soap-box, fire-and-brimstone, street corner preacher impression. And that’s where the mp3 starts.
Late last year, I got it into my head that I wanted to give vodcasting a go. I decided to make my first attempt about how my mission team is preparing for mission, especially the youth aspect. Here is the first episode.

This is one of those movies that I’ve heard all about for so long but never seen. Can it live up to the hype? Is this really the Citizen Kane of horror movies? (Citizen Kane is another one of those movies I really should get around to seeing.)
