Church 2.0

My goal with the film is to destroy the evangelical caricature by putting a human face on what has become a political statistic. Faith is something that should bring people together, not tear them apart, and I'm sick of the media-political elite using it divisively. People of faith have much more in common than not, and it's time everyone starts talking -- respectfully. Myself included.

Will Samson points us to Jim Gilliam's blogpost today regarding his in-production documentary, Church 2.0 which is currently slated for a late 2006 release. Jim's known primarily through his association with MoveOn and as a co-producer of Outfoxed. Jim' has also set up a wiki for Church 2.0.

Jim's requesting assistance:

If you're interested in getting involved, please send me an email, join the discussion here, or just head straight over to the wiki. Right now, I'm particularly interested in people open to giving their testimony on video, or people who want to film testimonies of others in their church. Some of this will be in the film, but more importantly, I hope to put together a website with thousands of testimonies across the evangelical spectrum.

I enjoyed getting to know Jim a bit this weekend and an intrigued by this project!
