Filmmaking: Business or Ministry Part II

Filmmaking: Business or Ministry Part II

As far as I know, none of my filmmaking friends gets up in the morning and says, “I want to really make a failure of a film.”  No, we all have good intentions. Our good intentions cover several areas.  One, we intend to be successful in our chosen field of work.  Two, we expect other […]

Filmmaking: Business or Ministry Part I

I am an independent Christian filmmaker and I have faced the question, is filmmaking a business or is it ministry? Selling the Gospel? I was at a conference where we were screening our film Indescribable.  A lady came to our table and explained that they weren’t able to attend the screening but they were curious […]

Two Ways – A Chalk Art Story

Two Ways - A Chalk Art Story

Scared In Sunday School Chalk art has become a very large part of my story.  For the better part of my life I have thought of myself as an artist.  That’s why something I heard in Sunday School once scared me very much. I was a little Amish boy.  In Northwestern Montana the Amish community […]

Excerpt from my Notebook (from 8-7-10)

Excerpt from my Notebook (from 8-7-10)

“God’s calling then, is to communicate Him. He is the truth, therefore I must radiate truth. God is love, therefore I must radiate love. God is beauty and holiness, therefore I must radiate beauty and holiness. God is enough, therefore I must radiate contentment. These are all things that I cannot do with my hands, it is only the Holy Spirit that can perform this amazing communications feat. He is my eternal place of rest, therefore I must abide in Him and He in me or my life is vain.

Walking By Faith Part II: Don’t Quit

Walking By Faith Part II: Don't Quit

Walking By Faith Part II: Don’t Quit When I was out in El Paso with Bearing Precious Seed in July my computer crashed. There have been other times when my laptop has run into some problem and I’ve had to reinstall everything so I was not too concerned. The worst part was that I had […]

Walking by Faith – Do Not Be Afraid

Walking by Faith – Do Not Be Afraid

As I approached the first checkpoint apprehension returned. Needing reassurance I again reached up my hand to grab His hand and told God how much I needed Him. The guards glanced at my paperwork…

The Fruits of the Spirit

The Fruits of the Spirit

This was a fun chalk drawing to do. If you look the red part of the watermelon is heart shaped. That is where the talk started- the condition of the human heart. The cross represents salvation and the dark spots (seeds) represent problems of the old flesh in our lives. The inner rind (light green, yellow) […]

the Pink Holiday

the Pink Holiday

I remember the first time I painted for Valentine’s Day. All those hearts scared me, and the colors! And the flowers! I was stumped, how to paint pretty flowers?  Well, with a little experience I am much more comfortable with the pink holiday now. And I’ve even gotten some compliments from girls…

Fear and Faith

by Joseph Graber

Fear and Faith

On a good day when everything is going well I would tell you, if you asked me, that fear was sin. If you asked me the same question on a day of darkness, when the future looks uncertain and I really don’t know what is happening or going to happen,  I might tell you that fear may […]

A Message to Carry

by Joseph Graber

While working at the auto parts store the other day a number of men were discussing the usual politics, weather, and women. They overheard me telling my boss that I would be out of town for a week while going on a mission into Mexico. Upon hearing this, one of the men asked me what the price of […]
