GODFLIX: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Justin @ Field)

August 30, 2011

When J.K. Rowling began creating the world of Harry Potter over 15 years ago, she probably didn't have any idea that it would have such a big effect on so many people. Now, with the movie adaptation of the final book breaking records in the theaters, there are probably millions of Muggles out there mourning the end of the series. But what does Harry Potter really have to teach us about endings? Come join us at Field next week when we'll discuss the magic of Harry Potter, and how God wants us involved in the rebuilding of things once death is defeated.

GODFLIX: The Help (Peter @ Field)

August 22, 2011

There are times in history when profound shifts in the convention and tradition of the day break loose and new possibilities emerge. We can look around and see what needs to be done, but where does the courage to change come from? Just released in the theaters this week, The Help (the book by Kathryn Stockett) is a story about finding just that kind of courage. The world that God created didn’t include the kind of lines that have been drawn and continue to be drawn every day. It’s one thing to see the injustices around us, it’s entirely another thing to bring about the change that those injustices demand. Join us next week and we’ll take a look at how Stockett’s beautiful story of a group of women unwilling to stay silent is interwoven with the story of a God who calls us to action.

GODFLIX: Winnie The Pooh (Jeremy @ Field)

August 14, 2011

Chances are that you grew up with one foot in Hundred Acre Wood along with Christopher Robin, and partly because your parents got as much out of A.A. Milne’s stories as you did. There is something deeper than stuffed bears obsessed with honey there. These quirky, whimsical and sometimes troubled characters that populate the world of Pooh help us grasp some of the most simple and basic pieces of life. Maybe Pooh’s statement, “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?"” is really very like Jesus’, “Come to me all you who are tired and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.”

GODFLIX: Captian America (Greg @ Field)

August 7, 2011

What if there were super heroes? Well, there aren’t. But what if everyone sifted their lives carefully for the best in it, then amplified it and took on the problems of their family, neighborhood and world? Now that would be amazing! Who’d need superheroes? Maybe that was what Marvel comic book creators and Joe Johnston, movie creator, had in mind with Captain America. Maybe it is what God has in mind with you. And then there is the surprise ending that foreshadows something you had would never have expected, but was in the making all along.
