At the Movies [2]: Hacksaw Ridge - David Harvey

 

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.
[Philippians 4:8, MSG]

Who of us doesn’t love the movies?  It’s an almost universal love affair.

For this month of summer, we want to consider how the movies we watch and love actually play in our imaginations.  We want to be more thoughtful about our entertainments, more aware of the world-views we encounter, more in sync with how the movies shape us and our children.

As surely the most powerful art-form of our times, the movies deserve a place in our reflections.  This will be fun, but also thoughtful.
