So, instead of writing a devotional this week, I’m going to share with you two little movie gems you won’t want to miss. And the best part, they are both free if you have a Netflix account. Sweet, right? Ok, here goes….
1. Marriage Retreat – This movie cracked me up. No sniffles, just laughs. Lots and lots of giggles. It was a delightful surprise. Now, I could be biased. I'm currently doing the marketing forthis really fantastic marriage workshop. My husband and I are also leading a marriage-focused Bible study right now. So my mind is on marriage a lot lately. But I watched with a bunch of married folks and they laughed their butts off too. It’s worth checking out...unless you're single, then skip to #2.
2. The Encounter – This movie rocks the Kasbah. It's a movie about a group of strangers who meet Jesus one fateful, stormy night in an out of the way diner. I bawled like a baby. Everyone I watched the movie with bawled like a baby. It was a veritable bawl fest. Four thumbs up. Can’t say enough about this one. I think we’ll incorporate it into a small group bible study too.
Well, that’s it. My Roger & Ebert moment is over. I don't plan on writing tons of movie reviews since I’m typically the one who chooses all the duds in our family. But this week I struck gold and had to share! And if I strike gold again, I'll make sure to spread the love.
If you watch, let me know what you think!
