Preach the gospel without words – by the power of mime…

I had no idea, until today, that gospel mime was even a ministry category. And then two things happened. First, I discovered K&K.

Watch this amazing intro video first.

And then see them at work.

Then, somewhat serendipitously, Jesus Needs New PR featured this little video from a mime artist named Broadway.

Now. These guys might be a bit too literally into Sir Francis of Assisi. Who is famous for saying (though he probably didn’t) “Always preach the gospel, where necessary use words…”

There is a “Gospel Mime Worldwide Workshop” coming up if you’re interested.

But this is just borderline interpretive dance isn’t it?

These guys should wear these shirts when performing.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

One thought on “Preach the gospel without words – by the power of mime…”

  1. This is mime:

    I think Derek Webb put it well:

    A lot of “Christian art” is about the lens they’re looking through, rather than the world they see through it. I’m not going to criticize anybody for doing that, but I would rather look at the world through the grid of following Jesus and tell you what I see. But that doesn’t presume that all the art I’m going to make will be about following Jesus.
