Happy weekend to you all! It’s been a hot second since I did a “Friday Favorites” so that’s what today’s post is gonna be. So, grab a cup of coffee (or whatever you’re drinking these days 😉 ) … Continue reading
Being in front of screens is second nature for so many in today’s society. As I’ve gotten older I’ve tried to be more conscious about how much “screen time” I have on daily basis. As adults, we hear so much … Continue reading
Over the past few months, I have added quite a few more topics to my blog. I’ve written a post explaining why I don’t have a “blogging niche.” I still don’t have a blogging niche, but I do have a foundation … Continue reading
Let’s get real for a sec, shopping for a co-worker can be hard. We see them every day at work, talk over our coffee in the break room, but don’t know each other on a deep enough level … Continue reading
This September you’re in for a real treat when it comes to movies; especially thanks to the release of “All Saints.”
About the movie:
“ALL SAINTS” is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
After trading in his corporate sales career to become a pastor, Michael’s first assignment is All Saints, a quaint country church with a dozen members. It comes with a catch: he has to close the church doors for good and sell the prime piece of land on which it sits. While developers eagerly eye the property and the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael and his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots.
But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen (kuh-REN) refugees from Burma—former farmers striving for a fresh start in America—Michael feels called to an improbable new mission. Toiling alongside the Karen people, the congregation attempts to turn their fertile land into a working farm to pay the church’s bills and feed its newest people.
Jeopardizing his family’s future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do—close the church and sell the property—or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community.
I love the idea of the plot! It encourages us to not always do what is expected, but what we’re called to do. Learning to listen to God instead of the world can be so hard, but can grow your faith (and sometimes others faith, too) in leaps and bounds.
Also, I don’t know about you, but I think this movie is being released at such an appropriate time in society, and, furthermore, the world!
A time where we are not to shut our arms or turn a blind eye to those in need.
A time where we are not doing God’s work of loving our neighbors to the fullest.
This movie is one I see becoming a classic “faith based film.” It’s left a mark on me just from the trailer. I truly cannot wait to see it myself once it comes out in theaters!
