(lent) 35


millimeter. the size of the most basic film commonly used in still photography and motion picture film making. 35mm film has remained relatively unchanged since its introduction in 1892.

title number of United States code regarding patents.

number of words from the Declaration of Independence in which Thomas Jefferson claimed certain inalienable rights for all American citizens.

“We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”

verse in John chapter 11 which is the shortest verse in the Bible. "Jesus wept."

verse in Mark chapter 3 where Jesus states "Obedience is thicker than blood. The person who obeys God's will is my brother and sister and mother."*

number of miracles performed by Jesus recorded in the Bible.

moments in time; captured on film or on the page. absolute, non-negotiable, non-transferable moments grant us rights and privileges... grant us freedom.
Jesus was real. fully human. fully God.
through Him, we have been granted freedom.
and what does the Lord ask of us? to obey.

Micah 6:8 comes to mind: He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

freedom through sacrifice should compel us to act in such a way.
