Phil Vischer tells the story behind the making of Veggie Tales. His journey with God and the lessons he learned.
He learned that working for God is not the same as being with God. He was working so hard creating the Veggie Tale series that he lost his joy in Christ. Then God allowed Veggie Tales to go bankrupt. Phil sees that as a blessing. A chance for him to get back to God’s love and some peace in his life.
So now on a new track to teach Christians ‘What’s In The Bible,’ Phil is walking this out by God’s Spirit. He says, “Ok God, what gifts have you given me? I am going to try to create projects that use as many of those gifts as I can and stop trying to do those things I am not gifted for, like managing staff. ” He works with all freelance Christian staff. He believes this is the way to do it so everyone is doing what they do best. He is the conductor and he understands enough to give good direction. That’s how the magic is created.
Thank you Phil Vischer for sharing these creative lessons behind What’s In The Bible, and Veggie Tales.
