Some Helpful Links

By Mark D. Roberts | Thursday, December 10, 2009

Today I want to put up some helpful links.

First, let me draw your attention to some new material on There’s an interview with Judge Glenda Hatchett of the television program, Judge Hatchett. This is a substantial, moving conversation with a woman who is serving the Lord in a unique way.

Then there’s a fine piece by Matthew Alexander, “Secular Work vs. Sacred Work: The Greek Distortion of Work.” Alexander, a financial planner, lays out in practical terms some of the misunderstandings of work that are popular among Christians today.

Ramblin’ Dan’s blog links to a fantastic video called Lindsay. It focuses on a young woman who lives out her Christian faith as a teacher in New York City.

Lindsay was produced by Deidox.  I was not familiar with this organization, but I was most impressed by this video, so I checked out their website. The Deidox byline reads: “Short films telling true stories of an active God.” The “About” page explains the name: Dei (Latin for God) + dox (short for documentaries) = Deidox. The organization is led by Brent Gudgel and Dave Mahanes, who now reside in California. They hope that, in time, they’ll be able to support their work by selling the videos for church and other groups. If they keep up the quality and message of Lindsay, I expect they’ll have great success.

Speaking of wonderful videos, check out this Advent clip produced by Christine Sine, with music by my friend, Jeff Johnson.

    I hadn’t heard of Deidox before, but they sound like a group worth supporting and following. I think it’s exciting to see Christian filmmakers doing small, creative films with such great stories. Parables, actually. Thanks, Mark.

    DEIDOX and other wonderful Christian film makers were honored at the October 2009 “A Night of Film” at our church, Coast Hills Church in Aliso Viejo, CA.

    Here’s the URL to a blog post by another film maker that explains The Veracity Project, the Visual Story Network, and others who support the growth of Xian film makers:

    I attended “A Night of Film” in 2009, and it is a “must see” event for anyone in southern California in late October.

    One film that deeply moved the audience was “The Butterfly Circus” (URL):

    Let’s spread the word re: what God is doing through these film makers.

    Here’s a more current link (the one above is from 2008):


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
