URIM &THUMMIN

My friend Dub Cornett's documentary about three country boys who found an object at Goodwill which allows them to communicate with God -- the hallowed URIM & THUMMIN -- has recently been accepted at the prestigious International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam. Go to the Urim & Thummim website -- http://www.utmovie.com/UT%20Website/Welcome.html -- and watch the trailer. You can also go to the IDFA site -- http://www.idfa.nl/en/ -- to check it out. Dub is headed to Amsterdam to sit on a panel with Werner Herzog, a fan of the film.

This is absolutly mind-blowing stuff -- outsider reality, as it were -- something Dub specializes in. These boys have located a spiritual icon of the ages. Flannery O'Connor could have written this story. Think "Wise Blood" centered on a sixty-nine cent curio through which believers have mystic visions.

This is exactly how Mormonism got started and now we have a Mormon running for President.

Think about it.
