TT5: Movies That Move

Today's Thursday Top Five is sparked by a chapter in Practitioners (p. 99), where I was given a doodle page to write down a few movies that have been used by God to stir things up inside me.

  • THE BIG KAHUNA - evangelism & marketing
  • THE STORY OF US - marriage is the ultimate relationship
  • CRASH - stereotypes suck
  • TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD - integrity & honor still mean something
  • GLADIATOR - there's more to being a leader than being the one in charge

    The chapter goes on to say that one way for the Christian to engage film is to realize that movies tell a story, and that they're worth seeing because of what we can learn of life and God. That's why I think I've always enjoyed a good movie, and why I probably have never really had time for escapism themes, campy teen horror flicks and the rest. Good chapter, made me think, and something I want to pass on to my kids and to the friends around me.
