12) You Will be Moved by "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind"

Have you seen “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” (available on Netflix)? It’s about a young boy in Malawi trying to make it through life in spite of his family’s poverty and the political forces around him. He loves science and wants to learn — but there are so many enemies that seem to want to keep him away. The movie seems fit for ages 12 and above for sure. There’s a scene or two of fighting, but nothing that a young lad wouldn’t see on any other prime-time drama. Frankly, the life lessons about trying to make it in the midst of a corrupt democracy is pretty chilling. You’ll ponder this one for a long time after viewing it.

9) Why does Linus Drop His Blanket?

What do YOU use for your security blanket? Linus used a real blanket.

But this past week, I’ve been hearing from several sources the theory that — he drops it as soon as the angel says, “Fear not!” If so, maybe Charles Schultz was trying to drop a subtle hint that, once we’ve encountered the Good News, we won’t need any external forms of security. Your thoughts?

8) A Movie about Christian Marriage, for the Season of Love

They say this is the season for love (Valentine’s Day and all). If that’s the case, how fitting that “The Song” (movie) just released last week on DVD. Learn more about the story at…

THE SONG 30-second trailer, Available on DVD Feb 10 from City on a Hill Productions on Vimeo.

The plot goes something like this (according to Wikipedia): ” Aspiring singer-songwriter Jed King is struggling to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his famous father when he reluctantly agrees to a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival. Jed meets the vineyard owner’s daughter, Rose, and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose ‘The Song,’ which becomes a breakout hit. Suddenly thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation, his life and marriage begin to fall apart.”

Now here’s the disclaimer: I haven’t seen the film personally — and I’m currently on the road and won’t be able to get to it for a while. But I know the producers – and the guy behind it… so I’m literally 100% certain it has to be good. Note all the great resources, including study guides and pastors’ kits. Highly recommended, because I know the source.

8) Have you heard about KING of GLORY the Movie?

Learn more about it at…

This creation-to-Christ tool for making the gospel clear to Muslims (along with all who are biblically illiterate) is very close to completion – in English. In addition, language dubs in many languages (beginning with Spanish, French, and Arabic…) will begin next month. A new scene is being uploaded to YouTube every Monday and Friday. Check it out!

11) Best Practices for Missions Mobilization (the Movie)

If one of your goals is recruiting missionaries for service, or finding volunteers to serve them, why WOULDN’T we want to watch this free one-hour clinic on missions mobilization?

Presented by Mark Stebbins, a veteran of thirty-four years with The Navigators, including eleven years in Africa and fifteen years in mission mobilization. He currently serves as Western Director and National Missions Coordinator for the U.S. Collegiate Navigators.

7) “Half the Sky:” New Hope for Women in the Global South

I mentioned this mission agency CEO retreat I attended. One of our guys introduced us to “Half the Sky,” a documentary about women in the third world. It presents 6 different segments, each with a different USA actress who meets women from different parts of the world. Learn more at….

It’s produced by Nicholas Kristof, a columnist for The New York Times since November 2001. He’s not a Christian, but it’s clear that some of the people he interviews ARE. Fascinating stuff.
