ReFrame is a 10-week, film-based study launched this past year by Regent College, an evangelical graduate school located in Vancouver, B.C. Regent’s Marketplace Institute produced the series in conjunction with the Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture.
Each 40-minute episode is a blend of commentary, a lecture presented by a Regent professor, and on-site conversations with Christians working in a variety of callings. Interviewees include J.I. Packer, Sally Lloyd-Jones, and Andy Crouch.
The episodes focus on the biblical story, including “Creation and the Fall,” “Israel’s Calling,” and “Strangers and Exiles.” The series ends with sessions focused on how we can live joyfully and what it means to be faithful ambassadors to the gospel in the present reality.
This series is ideal for small groups, church education classes, or for any group that desires to gather around the questions of how God is present in this world. Each voice challenges the viewer to know the biblical story so well that it can reframe one’s own story. Viewers are encouraged to ask hard questions and consider how Christians respond to the competing stories of the times, no matter their profession. The series is rich in text and offers much for thought and conversation.The website includes trailers as well as full episodes for review.
