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











Friday - Sadness runs through this book like a vein of silver in a mine. Whether it is the challenges that the Jespersens face, the history some of the children come from, or the bondage that some parents are under, it seems to lurk there in the background, weaving its way through an otherwise joyful story. However, when we begin to dig, as the miners did to extract that vein of silver, we find a greater joy hidden within the sadness. There is a Biblical principal here that I think we should learn. Life often heaps on us things we feel are unfair, and often that is true, but God is greater than our circumstances. As we dig through the tough places of our lives, that silver sadness within, we can find a Lord who is God over all. In Him we can put our faith and trust. We don't need to worry about how things feel. This often leads us astray. Instead we can look forward to the victory Jesus bought for us on the cross. We may not be perfect, but because of Jesus our Heavenly Father sees us as perfect. So that sadness that weaves its way through the story, both here and in our own lives, becomes an ornament of praise to God who lifts us up above our circumstances. We begin to focus on a God who sees us not as we are, but as we shall one day be...perfect in Christ Jesus.
