Rob Bell on Tuning One’s Soul to God’s Song

Author Rob Bell now gives his time to a film series known as NOOMA (an English variation of the Greek word, "pneuma," for breath of God or Spirit).

Author Rob Bell now gives his time to a film series known as NOOMA (an English variation of the Greek word, “pneuma,” for breath of God or Spirit).

Yesterday fellow saint and sinner Michael sent along this wonderful clip by Rob Bell. I watched it this morning and found myself nodding to the music. For restless souls looking for more meaning, more truth and more life, the piece is a rich reflection on who God in Jesus is, as Truth, Justice, Love, and Life Itself. Bell’s reflections on heaven and hell feature prominently in my own chapter on heaven in Grace Sticks,  which features a foreword by Michael Frost.

I just love this insight from Bell: “The question is not whether you’re playing the song…it’s whether you’re in tune…When you see someone sacrifice themself for someone else, they’re in tune…”
