Signs

Signs : Earth : Was Solomon right ?

As the poet Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” McManus once resonated with the loneliness of Solomon’s words. He wondered what good could come from the emptiness of the world. Then he looked more closely. He saw sprouts cracking dirt. He saw God breathing warmth into dust. And he saw earth transform from darkness to a source of life.

Earth explores the contrast between spiritual barrenness and God’s promise that He is doing a new thing for His creation.

Signs : Wind

Is there anything more mysterious than wind? We can’t see it, and yet we feel it brush our faces every day.

In the Scriptures when “God’s Spirit hovered over the waters” in Genesis, the word used for spirit can also be translated wind, or breath. So God’s Spirit is like the wind. We can’t always see Him, but we sense His presence daily.

Signs : Wood

Making choices in life often seems as if we’re in a jungle and there’s no clear path. In Genesis 3 we read about the Tree of Life, the place of man’s first rebellious choice-and we see that each choice creates the future for ourselves and our relationship to God. Everything is interconnected.

The film portrays a hunter sprinting through a lush jungle; trees whipping past him as he searches for a path. The man eventually comes to a symbolic tree of life and faces a choice of his own. We discover that love is a choice, faith is a choice, and in fact, choice can be a creative and deeply spiritual act.
