Finding God in the Movies

16 July 2013 by Natasha Kim CM –

 

Come and find God in the movies! There will be a series of movies showing on different specified dates, facilitated by Geoffrey Williams (aka Monty), a highly sought after speaker and retreat director in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. The event organized by Calvary Life Ministries is not to be missed!

The films touch on stories we live out of in our personal lives. To live is to be a pilgrim in time and as we journey, we discover that we are constantly entering into one story and leaving another. We live our lives in stories. They shape our lives, our responses to life, and even our expectations about life.

Conversion changes the stories of our lives, and we find ourselves re-evaluating those stories. These stories come from our personal experience, from our family circumstances, from the society we find ourselves in, and from the cultural senses of time and place, which establish our identity. But the stories we live out of also come from the way God sees and knows and loves us. Sometimes the stories we live out of are supported and reinforced by the story that is God’s story for us. At other times those two stories conflict. 

As we journey, this conflict becomes more apparent, and we find ourselves caught up in a life or death struggle to embrace the path to the abundant life that we are offered daily. Then we are asked to abandon the limiting stories we have lived by and to enter more fully the story that God creates for and with us.
