Much as I love posting these Hutchmoot sketches, there’s someone else whose work you’ve got to see. Check out my friend Jonny Jimison’s blog, where he’s also adding original cartoons to the mix!

Continuing to post some of my notes and sketches from Hutchmoot 2012…
These are notes from a session called “Tales of New Creation.” It totally rocked my thinking. I’m guilty of imagining that the afterlife will consist of disembodied souls floating among the clouds, but that’s a Platonic idea— it doesn’t line up with Christian orthodoxy. We won’t be intangible. The afterlife is material, and God’s the most substantial of us all.
I’d love to see a story that takes this angle.
My friends Stephen and Lauren got married last weekend. This has been a long time coming, and their romance has been a really cool picture of commitment, dying to selfishness, and God’s pure grace.
With that in mind, I decided to give them some of my
Kidding aside, these two are passionate for each other and for their devotion to Jesus Christ, and they know that though marriage isn’t easy, it’s very much worth it. They like to have adventures, and they’re going to get in a lot of (good) trouble together with they way they live out the Gospel.
The process begins! My pastor and I have started the glorious creative ping-pong of branding our next sermon series. This one’s based on Philippians and looks like it’ll have a summer-y feel.
Here are some pieces of the puzzle thus far. Here’s to figuring out how they fit together!
For the church’s relationship series earlier this year, we had a specific request and a short window of time. I’ve talked before about our bumpers; this time, the in-service transition between music and preaching was to be bridged by… a romantic comedy?
Well, sort of. The series title being “What I Did For Love,” we suggested to our pastor that we do a short spoof of a guy getting ready for a date. He gave his approval, but asked that the protagonist be played by the unflappable Derek French, who would also appear on the series logo. In fact, the last shot of the bumper and the logo were to match exactly.
Along the way, someone tossed out the idea that Derek should be made over by a redneck Tim Gunn. Hey, that added some spice. We added it to the concept and I went off to draft.
Finally, my intrepid colleague Vince pulled together his equipment and shot the whole thing in a single afternoon. He also neatly solved the problem of matching the logo by shooting a pic of Derek just after they finished filming… which then became the picture in the logo.
The result was a pretty big hit with the Sunday crowd.
