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

Today is our Day of Prayer. It comes in the middle of this tour because, quite frankly, I couldn't wait to start posting reviews for Winter, by Keven Newsome. As we are looking at this work about an outcast and how she is used by God, let us not forget that Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, became an outcast for us so that we might NOT be outcasts before the Father. I ask that you pray sincerely for both Keven and his debut novel, Winter. Mostly I pray that the lessons we can learn from Winter, those also found in Scripture, would take root in our hearts that we would become more and more like Christ. And when our way seems difficult, let us remember what Jesus went through for us. For He was not outcast by just people, but even the Father had to turn His back on Him because He carried our sins. As it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs upon a tree," and also "He who knew no sin, became sin for us." May we remember the great price of love and embrace it with all our being.

"Heavenly Father, we call to mind the great love of Jesus for us. We did not deserve such a great love, but You, oh Father, did not ask that we deserve it, but ask that we accept Your love. Bless each and every person who comes here, who reads this book, who hears of Your great sacrifice for them, wherever they may be, that they may come to You so You may live in them. Remind us that it is time for us to take up our cross and follow you out of our comfort zones into a world that is lost and dying. We praise You for the opportunity to do this, but even as we praise You, we realize that we cannot do any of this without the power of Your Spirit living in us. We need to stir up anew that which You have given us. To let You light us on fire, a fire that cannot go out, a light that cannot be hid, so that all those around us will know that there is a God who loves them, and of the great price He paid to show us that love. I thank you now for all those who will come into Your family, who will come to know you, through this prayer and through our own sacrifice to You. You are the One True King of whom we can rightfully say, 'Long live the King.' In the name of Your Precious Son, Jesus, even the Christ, we pray and thank You Father. Amen."
