a great story is getting better :: help save blue like jazz

October 1, 2010

I’m a huge Donald Miller fan.

I mean, I’m pretty much regular-sized… but I do love me some Don Miller.

This summer I read two of his books in a week. One of them was A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, the story of Don’s best selling book Blue Like Jazz being made into a movie, and how that caused him to examine his life story… to see if he was living one worth telling.

I loved it. LOVED it.  He challenged me to live a life story of passion, risk, purpose, and adventure.  To help my boys see themselves as heroes – as men of honor – purposing to live out valiant life stories of their own.  I’ve been waiting for the theatrical release of “Blue Like Jazz” with the kind of anticipation six-year-olds exhibit between dinner and the opening of the gifts while the grown-ups wash the dishes on Christmas Eve.

But now… well, watch this:

So I figure now we have a chance to make this story even more unique. What’s more fitting than a fan-funded effort to help birth this great story on the big screen? You want some ownership in a great story?       >> Go here.

Psalm 24:7 & Luke 10:42 >> Like David, and Mary, I'm in pursuit of my one thing. I'm the Pastor at St. Olaf Lutheran Church in Montgomery, IL. Pastor, teacher, writer, communicator, designer, and drummer. I definitely got the better deal in my marriage to Amy. And I couldn't be any more proud of my five amazing boys. Deeply grateful.
