Poetic Rendition of the Crucifixion as a Wedding

I tweeted this the other day…

https://twitter.com/#!/jonwellman/status/187538531474878464

As I am true to my word, here is the video…

I don’t believe I have ever heard the crucifixion related to the bride of Christ, His church, in this way before. I had never heard of the poet, David Bowden, before seeing this video, and know nothing of his background, but I intend to check out his work.

Take a minute to watch this. What are your thoughts?

Where NoCamo Is Seen

As I’ve mentioned before, this blog came about as kind of a fluke. But the above graphic is amazing to me.

That map indicates from where NoCamo has been viewed since the end of February. That blesses my heart. I love the fact that I get to proclaim the name of Jesus in this space and that His name travels literally AROUND THE WORLD.

I have always regarded this blog as a ministry, and continue to do so. Please spread the word as we spread the Word together. I’m praying that God will make much of Himself through the conversations that will take place here.

God bless you all!

Twitter Testimony from March 26, 2012

For those of you that follow me on Twitter (and if you don’t, why not?), I had a bit of a spell Monday morning.

At the time, I called it a “Twitter rant,” but by the end, I referred to it as a testimony.

I have just been blown away by God’s faithfulness and provision lately, and had to share what was on my heart. I felt like I was gonna burst.

Here are the tweets…

New NoCamo Facebook page

As I wrote about a while back, I have scaled back my use of my personal Facebook profile to family and friends only. I intend to continue to do so.

In other news, I created another Facebook page.

Huh???

Yep. I decided to create a public page to represent the NoCamo community. Wanna keep up with much of what I post on this blog, and the occasional Twitter tidbit? The Facebook page is the place to do so. Not a tweeter at all? Hop on the FB.

Click the icon or here to get there. Thanks!

Not Again!

If you are anything like me, you don’t like reading what I’m writing about in this post.

I know. I know. Not the best way to start a blog post. But I don’t really like reading posts from once-active bloggers who have been sporadic in their output as they try to work out “why” in a post.

But here I go anyway.

#1 Post of 2011… To Unfollow or Not to Unfollow – My Twitter Strategy

Slow down, Bandwagon. Time for me to jump on.

I’ve seen a few posts lately (namely from Carlos Whitaker, Michael Hyatt, and a few others) about Twitter strategy – follow back, don’t follow back, un-follow everyone, cancel your account altogether. Although I am hardly the most followed, most guru-iest tweeter around, I have picked up a few things here and there that I thought I would share.

Taking My Facebook Back

I have been doing a lot of soul-searching about Facebook. I believe I have come to a fundamental shift in the way I view the service.

Facebook has always been about how many friends someone has. Friend requests come in, and hardly anyone gets told no. In this way, I feel like Facebook has really co-opted what the word friend actually means.

Meet Ned

Ned made his debut at our church during an offering announcement video a few weeks ago regarding our upcoming Fall Festival. Here, he makes his return to the screen (or screens across the Internet, as it were) in the “viral” version of the ad. If you look closely, you can also see the debut of my daughter’s new toy, Squirrelly…

PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT a videographer of ANY discernible sort, and make no claims to that effect whatsoever. Enjoy!

Results from My Recent Writing Break

Toward the end of my recent break from writing, I had to stop myself from writing a number of posts. I needed an intentional break from the day to day of this particular aspect of my ministry, and had to exercise some restraint. It was difficult!! I love writing for NoCamo, and am easing back into the swing of things.

I believe there are times of refreshing that come from periods of inactivity that are beneficial. The break did me a lot of good, and I would encourage you writers out there (that have the luxury to do so) to step back periodically to develop some perspective.

Another result of my time away: I’ve decided to try to write more often, and not be so concerned about post length. I have always enjoyed Seth Godin‘s writing, and love how he is able to coax big ideas out of few words. I hope to develop my ability to do this. One method is the iBlog, which I reintroduced a while back. I hope to do more iBlog posts.

Please tell others about NoCamo. As always, you may choose to subscribe via RSS or email. Comments are welcome. Feedback is encouraged.

Thanks for reading!
