Full website coming soon. On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect. The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment. ‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

      • I asked my Dad where water comes from - sH2Orts film competition 2015


        from WaterAid Added 1,521 30 18

        I was inspired by children's curiosity and the motivation that lies behind that curiosity. Kids like to know how stuff works so they can build a secure world around them - a world they can confidently interact with. Water and its many forms must have seemed like a magical and mysterious thing when we were young; so in a world of growing uncertainty around water security and access, I wondered how that manifests in the internal lives of young people today. This film follows a boy's daily interactions and thoughts of water as an internal poetic monologue.

          • Jehovah Witness's comes to door and are invited inside...


            from George Vassilodimitrakis Added 210 0 8

            So I finally had some Jehovah Witness's come to my door (after waiting years and years!) So i got really excited and recorded our conversation (without them knowing)... If you ever wondered what it is like watching someone swimming in their own pride, ignorance and contradictions please feel free to listen... It gets better the longer you listen... I will say though, the last thing that came out of their mouth after hearing me out is "the truth is the truth" ... so that’s kind of encouraging... to those who requested this... enjoy!

                    Register & Learn more: http://www.Ligonier.org/events/2012-national-conference/ Burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads. One of the things most alarming about today’s culture is the way in which evangelicals are responding to attacks. Many have bought into the idea that having one’s heart in the right place is all that matters—that a passion for Jesus and the life of the mind are mutually exclusive. What this view misses is that burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads. We must develop our minds if we are to sustain our passion for the Savior and deal with the bias against us. At Ligonier Ministries’ 2012 National Conference, we will be addressing this problem as we consider the theme of “The Christian Mind.” From March 15-17, 2012, R.C. Sproul will be joined by Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Michael Horton, Steven J. Lawson, Albert Mohler, Stephen Meyer, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Del Tackett to consider the importance of building a Christian worldview, the role of education in the Christian life, science and God’s natural revelation, defending the faith, and many other topics.
