AOS RideShare & Blog

Sharers,

We’re excited to announce two brand new ventures at Acts of Sharing!

We’ve been sharing cars since we launched, and as a natural outgrowth of Acts of Sharing culture, we’re proud to be launching Acts of Sharing RideShare on Earth Day, April 22.

RideShare is just that – sharing a ride. We’re connecting you to the places you want to go with the people you know. You post places that you want to go and when. We’ll connect you with the friends going your way. Life’s better when you ride together.

To celebrate our RideShare Launch on Earth Day, we’re doing a FilmShare competition, featuring the most fun and creative 1-2 minute videos on sharing a ride that have ever been seen! On April 22nd at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas, we’ll be hosting a screening to enjoy all the films created, while awarding the best in each category. We want to invite you to submit a film for the competition. We’ll be celebrating the best and most creative of the films at the Drafthouse, but will also be embedding them on Actsofsharing.com afterwards. Have fun, dream big and share the movement! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

We’re also excited to let you know about the launch of our new Stories of Sharing Blog. Acts of Sharing has always been a movement about relationships, about people connecting to others through the things that they have. We thought it was about time to tell the stories at the heart of the Movement. We’ll be using film, visual art, and the written word to communicate how sharing is affecting our hearts and lives, and the relationships we share with others. To creatively capture the stories at the heart of the movement is our goal, and we’re excited to feature the ways in which Acts of Sharing is helping to grow people and communities together.

If you’ve got a story you want to share, we invite you to let us know. We’re blessed to be a part of this movement with you.

Yours Faithfully,

Brian

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.

Gaerea

Trapped in Limbo

Black metal may not be the first thing on your mind when you think of Portugal, but GAEREA is here to change that. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt sat down with GAEREA to discuss the band’s music, their mysterious name and image, and how office work can be art.
