Film and Theology: Walk the Line

 

 

Joaquin Phoenix gives a dynamite performance as the Man in Black.

Join us Saturday the 27th at 6pm as we dive in to a night of good film and good discussion. See below for signing up and for a little more insight into what we're all about.

So why are we doing what we’re doing?

Stories are powerful. Stories inherently resonate with us. Why is that?

Maybe story is so important because at the end of the day we are all part of the same one. Each personal vignette is a piece of one giant story- God’s story. His story is the history of all things, infinitely extending in past and future. Creation – Fall – Redemption – Restoration. Those are the chapters of God’s story. God creates. Man corrupts. God rescues. God reconciles.

God is the Great Storyteller. Story is important because each person is made in His image. Each person is drawn to stories and wired up to tell them because we look like the Great Subject of history's grand narrative. The stories we tell echo the story of the Father, often directly mirroring the story of the Gospel itself.

Movies themselves are a modernized platform for shaping the way we think about God and ourselves. They are one of the most pervasive methods of storytelling in our time, and yet we often don’t realize how influential they can be.

The goal and purpose of film and theology is to engage the material, identify the themes, and consider how these relate to the Gospel and the world we live in.

We love movies. We love people. The stories we watch on screen give us a common story to relate to. They give us a picture to help sort through what we find in our world and our lives.

Film and Theology is a recurring event we host on the last Saturday of every month, and you're invited.
