This weekend, we’re kicking off the series that has been an annual event at The Connection Church: God On Film. We love hero stories, because they inspire us to be something greater and more. This year, with all the superhero movies flooding the theaters, we thought it’d be fun to leverage the idea of heroes to focus on how we can be heroes in our everyday life.
Many people ask, “Why would we do a series that leverages Hollywood to teach Biblical principles?” Well, Hollywood pours millions of dollars into marketing their product and they capture the attention of our culture. We get to piggyback on that interest to teach something deeper that can really change lives. But also, movies are modern-day parables. Matthew 13:34 says that, “Jesus always used stories and illustrations like these when speaking to the crowds. In fact, he never spoke to them without using such parables.” Jesus used the power of a good story to teach a more important spiritual truth.
This is the perfect time to invite your friends to check out what’s happening. Trust me, they’ll be interested!
This Summer, you can either glide through, or you can make the choice to grow in your walk with God like never before. I look forward to seeing you this week as we get behind the blockbuster movies to find the spiritual truths that can lead us to have a stronger connection with God and with others.
