This is a video that was used for a sermon at my church (www.miamifriendschurch.com). The message was based on Philippians 1.12-26.
The story is an old one from China that talks about not getting caught up in the ups and downs of life and maintaining the proper perspective. In my context, it means trusting that God is in control and that He will use anything and everything for His glory.
I used a Nikon D90, a couple of lights, and my kids toys. The music is "Ragged Wood" by Fleet Foxes.
