From Series: "God in the Movies 2021"
Good stories have the power to move us, challenge us and open us up new awareness of ourselves and God. It is in the subtle art of storytelling that humanity often portrays its deepest longings, its greatest wonder, and its most heart-felt angst. These are all places that God shows up whether we recognize it or not. Today, movies are perhaps one of the most compelling sources of storytelling. Not all their messages are good, but many profoundly explore the human condition, our place in the world, and our relationship to God. Through this annual series, we will hear from community members about how a movie has stirred them to a deeper connection to Jesus. Since we can find God throughout culture, even in some unlikely places, we try to avoid choosing overtly religious movies with an obviously spiritual theme.
