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.

CFRB Starting Over

The look and feel of CFRB may seem the same at first, but we are starting all over. I am going to soon delete the members and then open it up to membership again. This is because so many are "members" but do nothing. Some of these have legitimate reasons, while others just seemed to have forgotten us. The burden has been placed on a few people, and that isn't right.

Of course I have been part of the problem. Insisting on a certain direction I have possibly forced some people into a position where they couldn't do these tours.

Here are some of the changes to expect:
CFRB will be made up of
Leadership
Members
Friends
Where Leadership are those members who have devoted themselves to carrying out various functions of leadership needed. Some may work on design, HTML, notifications, or moderating.
Membership will be those who are willing to devote themselves to reading and reviewing books for CFRB (minimum 3 per year unless you are going to do some of the posts for the CFRB page)
Review posts must be uplifting, or at least positive for the CFRB tour books.
Friends are those who would like to be members but just don't have the time. Many of them have their own blogs and do reviews for others. All that we would expect from you would be a notice to others on their blog when CFRB is having a tour week. Also we would ask that when you read a book for your own pleasure that when you post your review you would also put up a link the the CFRB site. This identifies you with us without making you do special CFRB reviews.

I'm hoping that together we can make an impact for the Lord.

A couple of things to keep in mind.
CFRB will continue to be a ministry, not just a showcase (although that is primarily how we minister)
CFRB will require some kind of activity from all its members on a monthly basis.
CFRB will lift up each other in prayer

Also look for interesting posts that may crop up in between book tours. I think you'll like the new CFRB. In any event keep us in prayer so that we will conduct ourselves as God so desires.
