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.

SEABIRD, by Sherry Thompson

Saturday. "That one thing." If you've ever seen the movie "City Slickers" you'll remember a part in it where the cattle foreman remarks that life is all about "that one thing". When you find out what that is, for you, then you are successful. I'm not going to do a review of the movie, but the statement has a ring of truth to it. God has created each of us in such a way that we are only truly happy when we are doing that one thing that He created us to do. It's different for each of us. Cara didn't have this sage advise. She had to go through a whole set of circumstances before she realized that the one thing that she could do was.... well you'll find out when you read the book. Nevertheless, on the way she learns, she experiences emotions, she is given gifts, but all of these things mean nothing without the one thing she is called to do. In fact some of the experiences and gifts lead her to that one thing. We are a lot like Cara I think. Not many of us know what our "one thing" is, but we press on, loving the Lord and following Him as best as we can. The thing with God is there is one thing we are called to do, to be, and then something else after that, and then something else. He is continually challenging us to reach further than before, to become more like His Son, so that when we cross that threshhold in Heaven and are ushered into the presence of our Heavenly Father, we will know what that one thing is. Each of us will then be able to give of ourselves to God individually just as He have of Himself to us as though we were the only individual on the planet. May we, like Cara, allow God to direct us through our hardships that we may find that one thing and rest in Him...for eternity.

Plus, there are other team members who will be posting just the basics, which I'm sure you'll find intriguing as well. So hunt around and enjoy the journey. Like Cara you may not think you are special or anything, but you really are. You may find yourself on one of these sites.





Now a little about Sherry Thompson:

I was born in Baltimore MD in 1946. Between then and my fifth year, my family moved to New-Port-News VA, Homeville PA and finally to Marshallton, Wilmington DE. I've lived somewhere in New Castle County DE ever since.

I attended the University of Delaware and received a BAAS cum laude from their School of Education in 1969. My major was Interdepartmental History but I earned sufficient credits to secure unofficial minors in both English and Educational Psychology.

During the last three years of my time as an undergraduate, I also worked about 20 hours a week at the University of Delaware Library. I was accepted into the university's psychology graduate program, but chose to accept a fulltime position at the UD library instead.

I worked at the library from the spring of 1965 to the spring of 2000, when I retired from my position as Supervisor of the Interlibrary Loan unit within Access Services. Now, I write. And, revise, and volunteer, and … oh, yes, I write.

SEABIRD, by Sherry Thompson


Friday. Freewill. There is a saying, "God will not force you to be willing, but He may make you willing to be willing." The example was given of a person who didn't wish to leave a burning house. Well, God can't force you to leave the house, but He can throw in a hornet's nest and make you willing to leave, thus saving your life. I think we see this in SEABIRD. Cara doesn't want anything to do with strange lands, prophecies, sorcerers, enchanters or any of it. She just wants to go home. That's pretty cut and dried. Although there is a certain amount of pressure put on her, she really isn't forced. It is the love she has for the people who have helped her along the way, and watching what happens to them that finally make her willing to be willing. At first it is simply turning towards the least hazardous route, but in time Cara learns to embrace the will of Alphesis, God of Narenta. Are there things in your life that have caused you trial and pain? Are there things that you just want to run from? Look closely and see if they haven't been moving you closer to the mature person you have become. For God does not promise us freedom from pain and suffering. Quite the contrary, Jesus promises us persecution. So why bother? Because His love is worth it. We do this, "For the Obedience" because we love Him. And we love Him because He first loved us. We can love and yet be hated and still take it with a smile on our face if we embrace God as Cara did.

SEABIRD, by Sherry Thompson



Thursday: Good and Evil. In some societies it is taught that evil is the most powerful force there is, or that the evil gods and/or goddesses are the only true gods and goddesses. In other societies it is taught that there is good and there is evil, and that within good there resides a small piece of evil, and within evil resides a small piece of good. These two are locked in an eternal conflict, never able to overtake the other because they are of equal strength. Then there is the Truth. The Truth is there is Good ad there is evil. Evil is always an imitation of Good, in fact its existence relies on the existence of Good. If Good were to be removed, then so also would evil. There are those who get confuse here and attempt to do away with Good so that evil will also cease, but what they mean is to make desires, lusts, and evil actions acceptable and therefore good by removing Good. Yet Good cannot be removed, because Good is a person. Jesus said to a man who called Him "Good", "And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." So we see that to eliminate Good we need to eliminate God. If we were to eliminate God would that not be the greatest evil one could commit? But you cannot eliminate God no more than you could create Him. So Good and evil remain, and they remain Good and evil, and God has already triumphed over evil by the blood of Jesus. One day He will utterly destroy evil, as Scripture says, "And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof." (Rev. 21:23) Know then that in SEABIRD there is also good and evil, but good shall always win out, for it has always been that way. It is the nature of good to be stronger than evil, for light to overpower darkness.

SEABIRD, by Sherry Thompson



Wednesday: In Other Worlds. One of the things that some readers find distasteful is the idea of other worlds. They can't seem to grasp the idea that there may just be more out there then they have been led to believe. One person who had to battle against such beliefs was Christopher Colombus. He studied the waters, the currents, the shipping lanes, listened to the tales of sailors and was convinced that there was more than they had been told. Colombus believed in other worlds, and that belief pressed him to go out and prove it. This he did, although afterwards much of what he did was marred by the greed of others. Still, it points to a very real fact, there are other worlds out there. Some are in the heads of writers like Sherry Thompson, Geralyn Beauchamp, Caprice Hokstad, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and many others. The argument that these are mere creations in a writer's head and not "real" worlds is a false claim. Maybe the names are different, or the landscape slightly different, but these worlds exist. Worlds that exist in the minds of others are perhaps the most real of worlds that exist. People are fond of thinking the earth is real, but is it? Will it not be destroy one day and remade once again? How many times has God written "In the beginning" for a different race of people who perhaps walked upon the same globe as we do? How many times has this been overcome with darkness? How many times has He shattered that darkness with His own presence, for He is the light of the world? Perhaps our world is only in the mind of an author as well, yet our author is God Almighty. If you really want to understand God you might want to explore some of these other worlds, for surely they do not simply spring up from one's imagination, but from the heart of a God who wishes to speak to His creation.

Tuesday: Choices. As with Cara we are all given choices, even if God has called us to do something. Even then He gives us the choice to accept or refuse that calling. Once you accept this truth there is no easy road set before you. All roads are dfficult and to refuse your calling is hazardous. Cara finds this to be true. Her journey is marked by many tears, tears that she sheds because of choices she makes. Then tears because of those she has come to love coming to harm. Tears well up within her over the enormity of the task set before her, but a sweet whisper deep within her tells her, "Lisen and watch". For God does not call us to do something that He is unable to accomplish through us. The problem is that we have such a difficult time in giving the situation over to Him. I was once told that God cannot make a person willing, but He can make them willing to be willing. You find that in SEABIRD. If you are in a cabin that is on fire and refuse to get out to safety, God can and will throw a hornet's nest in that cabin (because of His great love for you) so that you will flee the burning flames of the cabins in your life. So choosing to follow Him earlier on is much more preferable, although not always easy. Still, you will find that some tears you shed will be tears of joy, and these are the kind of tears His children should shed.

SEABIRD, by Sherry Thompson



Monday: Somewhere around here you'll find someone posting about SEABIRD, by Sherry Thompson. All I want to do is give a little blurb to get you going, to whet your appetite as they say.

Beginnings. There are all kinds of beginnings, and for people trying to understand the Bible without the working of the Holy Spirit in them, this can be a fatal flaw. For the Bible, "In the beginning" does not mean the beginning of all things, or the beginning of God (as some has suggested). Instead it means the beginning of the history of our world as it pertains to us, to human life. Likewise in SEABIRD there are several beginnings that you could use, but only a couple that will actually help you understand the story. For instance, it is the beginning of a tale of evil that will be crushed and it is the beginning of the adventure one girl finds herself in to fight against that evil. It is not the beginning of Alphesis, or the seabirds, or the Elder Ones or the Young Ones. It's not the beginning of enchantments or evil. It is, however, the beginning of an outpouring of grace and mercy onto a sinful situation. When you read SEABIRD in this light then you find there is much more to be learned. So grab the Bible, grab SEABIRD and begin your own journey into the dark places where Jesus sheds His light, shatters the strongholds of the enemy, and reaches into the hearts of those who love Him and changes them forever. This may well be a beginning for you, although you would not have guessed it. So listen carefully to the voice of the Lord as you read. You will not come out the same.

We're at it again. That's right, "Tag, you're it". Those posting reviews are listed below, although in no special order. Plus, there are other team members who will be posting just the basics, which I'm sure you'll find intriguing as well. So hunt around and enjoy the journey.
