Next month we'll be kicking off a series called "God at the Movies". Each week we'll be looking at a spiritual theme from a recent movie and then talking about it from a Biblical perspective. The films we'll be looking at are:

  • Stranger than Fiction

  • The Pursuit of Happyness (yeah, it's really spelled like that)

  • Spiderman 3

  • Transformers

It is going to be a powerful series, and it is going to be a ton of work. Some might think that this is an easy a few clips from the about what the Bible says...match point. But the reality is that it requires hours of preparation. Watching the movie. Looking for the core spiritual truth. Applying Scripture to that truth. Then tying it all together in a way that moves people to take their next step towards faith. I usually spend about 15-18 hours on each message. This series is going to be a lot closer to 24-26 hours per message. But I believe that it is worth it. Very few people who our outside of the church think that the church has anything relevant to say. Many churches are answering questions that no one is asking, and speaking a language that no on understands. That's why I think this series is so important. It gives us a chance to take a language that people already understand and use it to communicate a truely life-changing message. That's what the church should be all about!
