Overview
Nooma is a revolutionary product that is changing the way people experience spirituality ? a series of short films on DVD with a 32 page discussion guide. It's not a book or a cassette tape. And it's not a CD or a two-hour movie. It's a new format called NOOMA® ? short films, between 10 and 14 minutes long, about God and our lives. Since its limited online release in November 2002, NOOMA has impacted millions of people. Because of this initial success and great potential, Zondervan has partnered with NOOMA to bring these films to the world. NOOMAs are appropriate for personal and small group settings, congregational meetings, and much more. Like parables, they use the experiences of our lives to teach about the fullness of life through Jesus, tackling issues like forgiveness, discipleship, and unconditional love. The study materials accompanying each NOOMA encourage meaningful discussion with relevant questions and biblical references. Rob Bell, a leading pastor and breakthrough communicator in the Christian community, is featured in the first series of NOOMAs.

Community Description
Maybe a friend turned their back on you. Maybe someone you loved betrayed you. We all have wounds and we end up carrying around these things that people have done to us for weeks, months, and sometimes even years. It isn't always easy to forgive these people and after a while these hurts can get really heavy. So the only way to feel better seems to be somehow getting back the people that hurt us, to get revenge. But does revenge ever truly satisfy? Maybe forgiving isn't something you do for someone else to let them off the hook. Maybe forgiveness is about you. God didin't create you to carry these wounds around. God created you to be free.

Amazing!  Feb 4, 2009
This is an amazing and powerful 10ish minute video! It will challenge you to rethink some things in your life. This is a great video for those who carry emotional baggage and want to know how to feel the weight being lifted from your shoulders. I very highly recommend it to everyone!
 
I didn't like this video  Oct 2, 2007
I bought the whole set of the 17 dvd's and am working my way through them. This is the first one I didn't like. I thought Rob's message was kind of confusing and rambling and I thought the surprise ending was horrible. Everybody deserves a mulligan though (for you non golfers a mulligan is when you get to take a bad shot over) and as often happens the next dvd in the series, Dust, is one of the best.

I don't have a lot of forgiveness issues (the topic of Luggage) so perhaps that's why it didn't resonate with me. You can see from the other reviews that it does resonate with some people.
 
Nooma 007 Luggage -- a small group leader's review...  Sep 10, 2007
Luggage has an ending that bothered me the first time I watched it. I felt it was a cheap move for effect. Whatever your opinion on the shocking ending, Luggage, in use, inspired probably the deepest conversation yet among the guys in my small group.

Seems a lot of people are carrying around bags that they need to let go of.

Thing is--and this seemed to be the judgement of the whole group--you wouldn't, on it's surface, expect guys to have a problem with this forgiveness issue.

But everybody does.

We all carry our past around with us. Some of us carry it to our own detriment.

To be able to fully follow God, we need to give Him these bags that weigh us down.

What a powerful message!

I encourage you, either as an individual or as a small group, to watch and talk through Luggage. This is a great small group resource, a great message, and the gateway to a bigger life.

I give Luggage my full recommendation.
 
Outstanding  Feb 26, 2006
We have shared this with many friends and they have, in turn, shared it with their friends.
 
Impact  Jul 2, 2005
Nooma is a series of 10 (at the moment? Hopefully more in the future) short DVDs that deal with living a Christian life and having a Christian perspective towards life. I've seen 5 of the 10 and every one of them has been excellent, but I think "Luggage" is the best. It's a 13 minute video, shot in an airport, of a guy talking about people and their luggage. Sounds exciting, doesn't it! But there are spiritual implications, of course. This guy (Rob Bell) has an uncanny knack for boiling spiritual principles down to their essential elements and then explaining them in a very down-to-earth way. He doesn't preach--it's like he's talking to you, not at you, and that makes the message difficult to resist. I would heartily endorse the whole series--and "Luggage" in particular, if you have difficulty forgiving others--to any Christian who wants to understand better how to live a life that pleases God. And if you aren't a Christian but are curious about Christianity and God I can't think of many better places to start than right here. Tc
