Today’s Friday Shout Out goes out to Rob Bell. Rob Bell is the founding pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church. He is also the author of two great books, Velvet Elvis and Sex God: Exploring the Endless Connections between Sexuality and Spirituality. These are important enough contributions to the Church in their own right, but where I have seen Rob Bell have the most impact is through his Nooma videos. These videos are 10-15 minutes in length and deal with some amazing topics. We have used these some in youth group and they seem to really speak to our youth. The videos have led to some of the best conversations and discussions that we have had.

So, I want to lift up these great resources, and say thank you. You have helped the gospel begin to soak into the lives of the youth of our church.

Rob, if you get this, all you have to do is shout back! I would be very interested in hearing what you are up to and how you are experiencing God at work in the church.
