At The Movies
In the fragmented, multicultural world in which we live, one vehicle provides a means to have a conversation about common values: Movies. Using the themes of modern movies and TV shows to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with people in search of an answer to the question, “What is Truth”?
I believe that if we are to engage the culture, we must first “gain standing.” This is the idea that you will listen to me IF I demonstrate to you that I have something of value to say – and the value is in the eye of the listener. Paul did this in his sermon on Mars Hill in Acts 17. He engaged the culture by, first, understanding it, and second, having a conversation with its representatives. Today, we can do that through e-newsletters, blog posts, videos, books – and movies. With movies, we can tell a story, and say “It’s like that scene from that movie, when ….”
When God laid on my heart His purpose for my life some years ago, I started with a newsletter I simply call Conversations with the Culture. I had no idea where the journey of writing it each month would take me. Today, I’ve created anthologies of past issues of my newsletter, a podcast based on the newsletter, and more. As you explore the resources I’ve created to engage the culture about the truth of God’s word, it is my prayer that we might find ways to partner together.
