I am taking a break from homework. My summer class started yesterday and is already at full speed. Usually, they limit the number of students in online classes and now I know why. There are 20 people in my class. I am used to having 8-10. We have 5 posting assignments for the week. I am supposed to read all of the posts, responses, questions, etc. That means I will have about 1000 posts to read. This week. My computer is way too slow for this kind of activity! On the good side, I sure will get alot of different POVs this semester.
Let me introduce you to three of my favorite Christian movies and the important messages they have for all of us:
The Last of the Mohicans. Daniel Day-Lewis in a breechcloth should be enough here. It is. Hmm. Hawkeye is a man living far from his home. He is a white man, taken in by the Mohican indians. In the movie, Hawkeye rescues two women from the Huron and the English (the bad guys) and does everything he can to deliver them to their father. Thus, he and his Mohican father and brother have been forced into particpating in the French and Indian war, fighting on the side of the Americans. This is not Hawkeye's war and he could easily melt into the forest to a quiet life. Oh, he wants to. But, he does the right thing, holding true to the beliefs taught him by his father. Here is our lesson; we live in a place that is not our home. We could easily hide at home where things are comfy and we don't have to get involved in other people's messes. But, God has called us to love one another and that involves getting out of the house, getting our hands dirty, and giving up some comforts. We don't have to do it in a breechcloth, but it was nice that Daniel Day-Lewis did.
Singing in the Rain. God designed us to sing and dance in every situation. In the rain. In a cake. With people we like. With people that drive us crazy. Life is a song cue. Sing it up! Dance till you drop! Plus, I just remembered that I once danced in a show with Donald O'Connor! Isn't that some kind of sign?
Tell me your favorite Christian movies!
