THE BLESSING Dr. J Pietro Aparicio - June 9, 2020

We have been forced to be separated from one another but connection and creativity have found its way around. We have discovered that we are able to create even when we are not one next to the other.

An example of this is The Blessing.

The Blessing is a powerful song that has spread all over the world. This time is different. It is not a big hit song by a super star singer. The blessing is a Christian song composed by Elevation Worship, a Christian group in North Carolina, US. The song was released on YouTube on March 20 and very quickly moved to millions of views. Thousands of Christian singers are singing this song in virtual gatherings all over the world and in many different languages. It has spread like fire.

I have listened to the song many times and in many different languages. It is exciting to see the commonality of these singers. They come from different countries, cultures and language, but when they sing, they are like a copy of each other. They are united and linked by their faith.

Just like singers, filmmakers are a creative community and geographic limitation should not interrupt that creativity. Filmmakers must be willing to break out of the old ways.

We are learning from the singers in the Christian community that there are opportunities such as virtual productions that unite artists. You might know the filmmakers in your town and your own city, but there are actually thousands of talented filmmakers all over the world who are waiting to meet you and collaborate with you.

The Blessing is more than a nice song, the lyrics come from Numbers 6:24-26 in the bible. It is the reminder of God’s promise to be with you and bless you and your children and generations to come. I said YOU because the power of this song is because the blessing in the song is for YOU meaning, anybody who is listening.

Stop for a few second and ask yourself this question, why did I become a filmmaker?

There is still a chance to make that film production that has been burning in your mind and heart. It is the time to connect with your community of filmmakers beyond the boundaries of your own city, town and country.

72 Dragons visions is to facilitate the creation of communities of filmmakers all over the world, so you have the support of others in practice you are and craft.

The Lord bless you

And keep you

Make His face shine upon you

And be gracious to you

The Lord turn His

Face toward you

And give you peace

Numbers 6:24-26.

In the morning (in the evening), in the evening

In your coming, and your going

In your weeping, and rejoicing

He is for you (He is for you), He is for you (He is for you)

He is for you (He is for you), He is for you (He is for you)

He is for you (He is for you), He is for you (He is for you)

He is for you, He is for you

He is for you, He is for you
