NOT a documentary. Another Nooma DVD that is soft sell Christian preachy flicks. No story, no practical information and only 10-15 minutes long.

A Small Group Leader's Review...

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The guy's group I am leading is working its way through the Noomas. This review and the following reviews I will be writing over the new few weeks will be written from the perspective of a small group leader and aimed at an audience of other small group leaders.
So these reviews will be reviews with a twist :)
As of right now, I own and have watched the first 11 Noomas by myself. I have so far "done" the first 3 Noomas with my group. Here are are my thoughts on Nooma 003 -- Trees:
After the great story-telling of Rain and the incredible ending of Flame, I was afraid going into Trees, that the guys would be a little bored by the cinematography. After all, visually, it is just Rob digging some holes and planting a couple of trees. And we all know Rob milks the digging job to stretch things out...
That said, out of the three Noomas we've watched so far, Trees led to the best small group conversation.
To begin with, my guys--being guys--were quite taken with the truck. A pleasant surprise for me...especially as my iTunes would not shut off for a minute and the guys got to watch the Trees menu (which features the truck) as I tried to unfreeze the computer.
As Rob started talking about how the story of Adam & Eve is our story--how we live in a time where we have choices--and how we NEED a faith that is not just about someday, but today as well, I noticed the guys were still interested, still into it.
As we worked through the conversation guide two things happened. We talked about stuff that is and will continue to be life and--hopefully--world-changing for us. We also had a couple of threads in the conversation that pointed directly to the next Nooma, "Sunday."
The Noomas are great small group resources. I give Trees my full recomendation. I can't wait to do "Sunday." I'll let you know how it went."
