at proost we have been cooking up a project for advent for a while which is now available... inspired by grace and their service nine over the last few years we invited nine pieces by nine artists to interpret the christmas story. all the pieces have been created in response to one of the traditional nine readings from the nine lessons and carols christmas service. there are 6 movies and 3 tracks. the items are not available individually - we wanted to keep this as a set. the pieces are:
1. Genesis 3: 8–15; 17–19
Dust by Dubb and Coyote - mp3 spoken word and beats
2. Genesis 22: 15–18
God of Abraham by Doug Gay - mp3 song
3. Isaiah 9: 2; 6–7
O Come O Come Emmanuel by Pádraig Twomey and Jonny McEwen - mp3 song
4. Isaiah 11: 1–3a; 4a; 6–9
Love's Impossible Reality by Cheryl Lawrie and Mike Emmett - movie
5. Luke 1: 26–35; 38
Blessed by Juli Allen and Jon Birch - movie
6. Luke 2: 1; 3–7
Signs of Love by Andi Mac and Harronell - movie
7 Luke 2: 8–16
A Great Company by Jonny Baker and Jon Birch - movie
8. Matthew 2: 1–12
Magi by Andrew Jones - movie
9. John 1: 1–14
Word by Gavin Mart - movie
nine costs nine pounds and is available in the movies section of the web site. you could use it in your church/community, at home alone, with a family. it's all downloadable.
i'm really pleased that harry (dubb) gets to make his debut on proost (proud dad moment) - we'll have an ep or album from him next year in the spring we hope.
i'll be blogging a few more advent ideas and links in the next few days/weeks but other things on proost that are also worth a look are si smith's amazing 25 - advent calendar and comic and cutout nativity - totally brilliant, kester's movie wait and jon's movie silent night.
thanks to everyone who has contributed.
