"In "Noise" (#5 in the Nooma series) Rob Bell surprises and intrigues the viewer with the challenge to be silent. And it is literally a challenge, as his gives that opportunity amidst the DVD. He only talks for 2 1/2 minutes, then there is a black screen with various written messages fading in and out along with (you guessed it) Silence!
I have yet to use this in a teaching setting. I'm just not sure that my group is ready for this yet. I've played this for myself when I need to clear my head and refocus myself when I get off track. However, his point is that we get so distracted by all we see and hear that we can't really focus on God like we should.
According to DVD liner notes, some people who bought this DVD called and complained because the DVD was only 2:34 long. It takes about 20 seconds for text to show up on the screen following that time. I guess that shows exactly how insecure we can be without noise and activity in our lives. But that drives home his point even further.
As you may have read elsewhere. Nooma is a great teaching series for older youth and young adults."
