Episode Two: Animation
Looking at the Latin root word of "Animation" and its meaning compared to its Hebrew counterpart word then examining against scripture in Genesis 2:7.
Playing off of the lyrics from "Grew Up In This" from @BeTheSymbol's "Sainthood In The City vol. 1" which state "In the beginning was the Word - WORD UP! My pops said Word is bond don't ever say bluff." this series is a more uncut version of some talks and encouragement looking at God's inspired word the Bible and pointing out a few ideas catered towards teens and young adults to pray about while implementing into their own lives.

Look out for an episode every Thursday at 12 noon on The Symbol's Youtube Channel.
Immediately after releasing this episode, a conversation started with my little sister Zsanelle.
She texts me about 30 minutes later with the words "I want to do the activity you gave to those teens at the end of it." with which I simply reply, "Do it."
She then says, "That has me thinking about video animation, and the root word anima - when making animation you have to put a part of your own soul and being into it because you create it and give it the ability to move and relate to others. That's also why objects and art hold memories and a level of sacredness."...
She continues with, "It's true for writing too. But then there's two ends from which we can look at the soul that's put into it: the author and the reader. First, the author uses their experiences and expression in words to create the text. But once a reader interprets the text, they too must use their own experiences and understanding in order to gain meaning from the text. So, in reading, it's like two souls are connected and communicating with each other."
Lastly, I reply with "Well, I think in all ways it's the 'artist' and the one 'receiving the art' or the 'producer' and 'consumer' of the art... You feel me?"
I simply wanted to share this conversation with my little sister who I am so very proud of as it plays into the self-reflection I was praying this weeks episode would lead you into. Much love.
