Amazing Grace. A Must See.

March 21, 2008

Last night was our first night of a new an eight week small group we are calling Faith & Film. Each week we are watching a film that has a cause. That has purpose. That is challenging.

Last night we watched Amazing Grace.
It is about a young zealot, William Wilberforce, and his fight to stop slavery in the 19th century.
One of his mentors/allies was John Newton, a former slave ship captain who wrote the hymn, “Amazing Grace.”

Who are those people in the world that don’t have a voice of their own.
Who are those that God wants me to stand up for?
What is the cause that God wants me to live and die for?

Any suggestions on movies that we can use in the future?

  1. i dunno about movies but you might wanna get more kids going lol

  2. No movie suggestion yet, but wanted to agree with your comment on the movie. That is the movie that really began to open my eyes and ears to those around me that are in need of love, peace, and grace.

  3. I really liked The Astronaut Farmer. Also Remember the Titans. And perhaps The Story of Us.
