"Standing Naked Before God: The Art of Public Confession," by Molly Phinney Baskette, is a book about one amazing, vibrant church’s countercultural practice of public confession of sin. Naked vulnerability — the raw, real truth — can save us all!
A big SALT thanks to Molly and to Pilgrim Press for the opportunity to create this book trailer!
SALT is a not-for-profit project dedicated to reclaiming and sharing the beauty of Christian life through film, photography, music, poetry, and ideas. We aim to build a community of conversation and resource-sharing that, like salt itself, preserves and seasons the best and most beautiful of the Christian tradition.
On August 28, 1963, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech about a dream that inspired a generation. Fifty years later, the dream lives on. This poetic and provocative short film has been created to inspire communities across the country to ask the question: how far have we come on the journey to social justice and what must be done to achieve the dream King so eloquently articulated in 1963?
This is what the church teaches us: we are made to bless. We are created and called to bless hammers and backpacks; relationships and homes; the waters of baptism and the bread and cup of Christ's communion; victims and perpetrators of violence, and even our own enemies.
