    Reads: CGI – Numbing the Imagination, by Jonathan Romney

    Such a surfeit of wonders may be de-sensitising, but it’s also eroding our ability to dream at the movies. Many CGI-enhanced films leave little to the imagination; the standard practice in blockbuster cinema is to show everything that can be shown, in as graphically detailed, mimetically literal a form as possible (the studios don’t want audiences complaining they’re not getting their money’s worth). But is there something inherent to CGI that contributes to a sense of diminishing affective returns?

    Divided: A Documentary About How Ministry Models Hurt Families. Is modern youth ministry multiplying or dividing the church?

    I recently watched a documentary called Divided. The documentary explored the question of how the family is affected by current models of ministry that segregate people based on age or demographic. It raises the question of whether this age-segregated approach to ministry is biblical (Spoiler alert: It’s not). If the concept of “youth group” is a modern invention, then where did it come from? What has it done to families over the past few generations? What is the role of fathers in all of this? These are a few questions the documentary explores.

    Watch it at the link.
