In NOOMA Group 01, viewers will watch NOOMA Films 001 Rain, 002 Flame, 003 Trees, and 004 Sunday – and look at issues such as where God is in the midst of our pain, the deeper meanings of the word “love”, whether or not our lives have any real significance, and the possibility that we get so blinded by religion that we miss out on what God truly wants. The accompanying NOOMA Book 001-004 is intended to facilitate deeper and more meaningful conversations among viewers related to the themes found in the films. NOOMA Group invites you and others together to search, question, and join the discussion.
