A backwards Christmas

If you haven't, please take the two minutes to watch this entire video. Trust me; it's worth it.

This video was played at the Christmas Eve service at Bettendorf Christian Church. I'll admit, I didn't get what was going on at the beginning. I didn't understand why they would put on a video that talked about someone not believing in Christmas.

However, when the video started playing backwards a sense of awe filled me. I thought it was an amazing look at the transition that happens when people become Christians.

You see, we have life backwards a lot. It's not just about Christmas. We have a lot of life backwards. We think life is about making the most of our time. We think life is about us. It's about having fun. It's not. Life is not about us. Life is about God.

I also wondered while watching this video, how the writer came up with that. I'm impressed by the attention to detail that a story can be read backward and forward. Palindromes are cool, but this is beyond any palindrome I have ever seen before.
