DVD Review

I apologize for not being more active, but not having other reviewers or books to review, it's been a little difficult. However I want to let you know about this wonderful DVD "God's Not Dead." Working at the library I found it on our shelves and took it home. When I brought it back I raved about it. I wanted to take it out again, but it seems word gets around. It's always on hold for someone else. That's great.

The opening scene is in a freshman college philosophy class. The professor states he is an atheist, and asks that if everyone will sign a paper with 3 little words on it he can dispense of the dust and get to the subject. Those 3 words are "God Is Dead." One student cannot sign that. He is given 3 chances to argue the case of the existence of God before the class.

Fueled by hate on one side and a determined love of God on the other this is not your simple movie. The poor kid researches and goes off on a journey of his own to state his case. The end is nothing short of amazing. I guess telling people stuff like this is one of the reasons I can't get a hold of it a second time. It's really that good.

SAVE MY CHILDREN, by Emily Wierenga

Tuesday - Another thing about this story that stands out, in fact is focal to the story, is love, pure unconditional love. It is the kind of love that gives in the face of torment, rejection, pain. It is the kind of love that gives when there is no human reason to give. It is the kind of love that breaks a person when even the least disciplined child the Jespersens cared for must leave. It is a love that consumed them to the point that all they came in contact with were changed because of it. This is the love of Jesus living as it rightly should in the hearts and lives of His people. The kind of love that you and I as Christians not only should, but must exhibit in our lives. I'm not saying we should go out and start an orphanage, but I am saying that the people around you are looking at you and wondering if this Jesus you talk about is real. To make Him real to them YOU must be Jesus to them by loving them as He loves them. It is a challenge like no other, to you, to me, to the church at large. If we do not love, then we are not of God. If that sounds harsh, take a look at 1st John 4:7,8. The Bible makes it even more harsh, if that's the word you wish to use. Yet it is essential. We all need to be loved, and God is love. Let His love pour through you to those around you in ways you never thought possible. That is the blessing you have to give to the world. As writers we can get confused thinking that our words are the best we have to offer. Not so. The world has plenty of words. What they need is love, His love, His love flowing through you and me, like it did through Harvey and Elsie Jespersen.
