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.

May our Lord be with you now and always. Remember, God is in control, even when things look like they're crashing all around you. David

SAVE MY CHILDREN, by Emily Wierenga











Thursday - Although the book is primarily about children and how God used the Jespersens to meet their needs, it is also about the adults, the parents that these children came from, the adults they met at Bethany House, and in some cases the adults they turned into themselves. It's a testimony of how God can take His love and break in on a cycle of violence or neglect and create something new. In Lamentations 3:22,23 we are reminded that as unfaithful and even brutal as we might be God is faithful and His grace endures forever. This is possibly the greatest legacy of Bethany House, and of the Jespersens, that of touching lives, young and old, so that they could experience a new beginning. At Bethany House they were able to start all over again. This is what God holds out to each of us, the ability to, by acceptance of His son and repentence of our sin, to begin over again. When we fail, He reminds us that His mercies are new every morning.
