Have you heard of I AM SECOND?
This is a website, a project, a… movement…
that is worth looking into. I am nearing the end of the 22 day challenge and so far I am in awe of the project.
When I first went to look, I was a bit worried to even click on the videos. I mean, they were supposed to be authentic stories from people in all walks of life. So that would make the videos, probably (I figured) stories of the trouble and pain that did draw them to Christ.
After checking it out though, I love the project. The videos are so well produced and each person tells their story with such clarity. I am truly a reader, not a watcher. But this century, visual things have meaning to far more people and this site fills a very important need. I am doing the 22 Day Challenge. One of my favorite videos so far is:
Each story I have watched has brought me to the brink of tears, where, I’m going, “yes, that can happen, that’s horrible stuff” And, “yes, I’m so glad you are okay now and have found peace.”
Many of the people who are in the videos are actors and athletes, musicians, and many others are regular people. You can watch a five minute video and share all over the web. (Yes, I keep sharing, it’s good stuff!)
See what you think about the authentic stories on iamsecond.com. You could do the challenge or just choose a topic you are interested in. The site is organized by topic.
Want to help the project? One of the easiest would be to help create more films through Seconds Change:
Give Change, Make Change – Many more stories are waiting to be told. You can help (and this is easy). Commit $2 every Tuesday to build film funds, and your contribution will be used to develop, produce and promote new films. Join the project and become an I am Second insider with access to exclusive content via Facebook.
So visit the iamsecond website, the Nashville page on facebook and follow them on twitter.
