“Nooma” is a play on the Greek root pneuma, which means wind, breath, spirit, or ghost.
I lifted the words right from Nooma's page. I could not say it any better. I have watched all 24 of these short films. Rob Bell is profoundly simple and direct, yet he paints a truth that is so positive that it simply feels like it is the Master's plan along. Take a long at these films I am sure they will leave a profound statement on your heart and soul. Go to You Tube and check out the trailers or short films posted there or click on the link below. The 2nd film in the series, "FLAME", left me with a deeper sense of the the meaning of the word "Love". I just had to share this one film with you. Please enjoy.
"Jesus lived with the awareness that God is doing something, right here, right now, and anybody can be a part of it. He encouraged his listeners to search, to question, to wrestle with the implications of what he was saying and doing. He inspired, challenged, provoked, comforted, and invited people to be open to God’s work in this world. Wherever he went, whatever he did, Jesus started discussions about what matters most, because for Jesus, God is always inviting us to open our eyes and join in. NOOMA is a series of short films that explore our world from a perspective of Jesus. NOOMA is an invitation to search, question, and join the discussion."
