Project 2-Kerith, Amanda, Arie, Alyssa, and I

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

For Seminary I did a project based on this verse and photography. I had students take pictures and I take pictures of things that we thought portrayed this verse. We tried so show pictures of things that were lovely, noble, right, etc. I framed them and put them around the underground. Then the next Sunday I had created a powerpoint out of the pictures as well, and had small waterfalls running in the background, had fresh smelling candles lit, corners of the room divided up with water that had lemon and lime in it, grapes at the little tables, and refreshing music playing. After the powerpoint I asked students to go sit and reflect on this verse and some how creatively express it themselves. I had some students write a poem. Some students wrote lists of things that they could think of that were in these categories and things that they think about that are the antithisis of this verse. Some students colored or drew out what they thought of this verse. It was such a fun project. Here are some of the ones I took, and I will put up the ones some of the students took later (they aren't on this computer I am working on).
