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.

  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.
