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.

Day of Prayer

Day of Prayer

Today is July 4th. Since the beginning of this year we have dedicated the first Sunday of each month as a day of prayer for the book that is to be toured that week, as well as for all the other many and diverse needs we have. On this special day, and it is very special to many people in the United States, July 4th means this is a day when we announced our independence to England. Although hostilities had already begun, it was this Declaration of Independence that told England they were no longer dealing with rebellious colonists, but they were now dealing with a new country. England didn't take us seriously at first, but those who died in battle, on both sides, realized how precious this gift of freedom was to us. With this in mind I ask that you pray for yourselves and for your nations, that God would preserve those freedoms which He has clearly saw fit that you should enjoy. More than that, I ask that you pray that you would immerse yourselves in that freedom that God has granted to all who come to Him through His Son. I want you to realize the cost that freedom has. Throughout the history of our world many people have died that others could enjoy freedom, but none so fully, none so perfect a sacrifice was made other than Jesus Christ on the cross that we might enjoy every and all kind of freedom.

Now do not be alarmed. With freedom comes responsibility, but it is not to ourselves primarily, but to the One who paid the price for so great a freedom, and for those who would come after us, that they might enjoy so great a freedom. For this reason, just as we shall find in The Duke's Handmaid, we come to God as Freewill slaves. In that sacrifice we identify with His sacrifice and the freedom He offers is more tangible to us and those around us. May our lives be more visible than all the flags that those in the United States will wave on this day. May we shine brighter with the love of Jesus so that we are more spectacular than all the great firework displays put together. May, on this day, and throughout this week and beyond, people look upon us and find their way to our Father's side through Jesus Christ as He lives in us. This is our reason for being. May God bless all of you as you celebrate, rejoice and remember both the freedom we have and the price it cost for that freedom. May each of us honor God with our lives.
