What We Do
Try My Jesus is a forthcoming series of multimedia projects that will allow readers, viewers and participants to engage in creative ways with the Good News that Jesus proclaimed. The message in essentially that Jesus is love, just as human and just as divine as the rest of us. It holds out the possibility that the power of his message mattered more than how he he was conceived, who his parents are, and whether or not he performed miracles. Toward this end, Try My Jesus will debut on social media in winter of 2022, followed by a book of daily reflections in the spring. This will be part of a larger, broader series of books that will build out upon this them, in the vein of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and the Rich Dad Poor Dad series. The target audience is people who are dissatisfied with conventional ways of understanding Jesus and his message and are looking for a more liberating, inclusive way of engaging with their faith and with what he taught.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:
Like Rich Dad Poor Dad and like Chicken Soup for the Soul, the logo needs to work both as a stand-alone representation of the brand and as a book title. I don't want any crosses or fish or Bibles, i.e., traditional Christian symbolism. The logo should be fresh and inviting, speaking of new possibilities for spiritual growth, love and connection. I like how the Engine 2 logo evokes some of the traditional feeling of what a fire truck or station looks like. Trying to strike the balance between familiar (Jesus) and new (not your grandparents' Jesus).
