You Will Watch Us Rise

Evil cannot kill the children of God.

By Emily Cozzens

 

Ash clings to my skin

Smoke stings my eyes

The trees are just skeletons

Blackened and dry

 

The chimney still stands

Amidst the white ash

Attention Filmmakers! Kingdom Cinema Launched!

Watch “Seventh Seal”, the first film to be published by Kingdom Cinema!

As of now, Kingdom Pen is no longer an entity solely devoted to the medium of writing. Thanks to the hard work of Daniel Thompson and others, Kingdom Cinema, a branch of Kingdom Pen devoted to encouraging quality Christian filmmaking, has been launched!

Kingdom Cinema will seek to be a hub for Christian creators and filmmakers where they can post their videos, gain an audience, and connect with like-minded Christians filmmakers. It is also our wish that Kingdom Cinema will provide powerful, wholesome, and entertaining Christian films for the enjoyment and spiritual growth of our viewers.

 

Benefits

*Accepted short films will be posted across several video sharing mediums including, but not limited to, YouTube, Vimeo, and GodTube.  The videos will also be advertised on social networks such as Facebook, the exclusive writer’s forum OYAN, and will be posted on the Kingdom Pen website.

Hoping to capture his heart’s desire.
