Why Christian Films Regularly Have a Sucking Sound Associated With Them

Since I regularly review Christian films on my blog this 2-part podcast series is of interest to me.

I’ve listened to the first episode and I can tell you it’s top-notch.

Chris Staron has done a great job with the entire podcast and this one, in particular, is worth a listen.

One statement in the podcast by Rich Christiano got a reaction from me:

I’d like to see Stephen Spielberg take $400,000 and make a movie. Let’s see how good he does.

Frankly, I think he’d do a great job. He’s an accomplished filmmaker and while a film’s budget is a major factor in how good a film looks I think a director’s talent and the actors’ talent play a much larger part.

All that being said, check out Truce, I think you’re really going to enjoy it.

Synopsis

Healed By Grace 2: Ten Days of Grace is the story of a girl who loves horses and how her dream unites and knits her family closer than ever before.

Fourteen-year-old Jessie Fuller (Kennedy Martin) is obsessed with horses, and pleads with her parents for the ultimate birthday present: a horse of her very own. While her father John (David Matthew Weese) considers it, her mother Brandy (Stacy Munsie) adamantly refuses time after time.

After discovering signs of Brandy’s breast cancer, John persuades his wife to send Jessie to a summer camp, but discreetly takes his daughter to a horse ranch instead. The only problem is that the owner of the horses, Gauff (Larry Bower), is Brandy’s negligent father.

Jessie is having the time of her life, becoming fast friends with Riley (Natalie Weese), the stable hand, and learning to ride Grace, a beautiful, pleasantly compliant horse. The real tension begins when father, mother, and daughter discover the secrets everyone else has been hiding.

Why I Might Stop Using YouVersion – 10 the Podcast

I was reading through Francis Chan’s devotional in YouVersion this morning, Letters to the Church, and one statement stood out to me:

If achievement is your idol, you won’t make time for mystery.

This really struck me. It also seemed rather ironic reading it in an app that offers achievements for Bible-reading. Continue reading “Why I Might Stop Using YouVersion – 10 the Podcast”
