We are starting to go to the movies more regularly as a family. As Kay put it, “It’s something we can do to make us feel like we’re not as poor as we were.” So although Trevor had already seen it with his buddies, we all loaded up to go watch the new Alice in Wonderland movie, in 3D. It was a pleasure, with many visual treats and a story that surprised me.
Partway through the movie, I thought: How about that? For a change, I am just enjoying a movie, without seeing anything about the kingdom of God.
That thought did not last. It’s just a disease I have, a twisted way of seeing the world.
Some other movies I’ve written about:
- Avatar, cross-cultural communication, and incarnation
- The Missional Sound of Music
- Whale Rider: first posting, and second posting
- In America
