Honor begins at home

I hadn't planned to go see the movie, Courageous, last night.  I wanted to see it but I thought it could wait, I thought, "it'll be playing a while, no need to go right now", I thought I might even wait until it came out on DVD next year.

What a difference a day makes.

I was on the phone with Larry late yesterday afternoon and he urged me to go so that I could tell him about it today.  That's what we do.  I go see movies and then tell him about them in as much detail as I can remember, usually while he's munching on chicken wings.  It's one of our things.  He says he always feels like he's seen the movies, too, when I'm done.

So that's what I did.  I got dressed and made it to the 8:15 showing over at the Galleria.

Now that I've had time to absorb this phenomenal, amazing movie and have shared it with Larry, all I can still say is wow.  This movie, made by the good folks at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany (Allbenny, for those of you who don't know how we pronounce it!), Georgia, the same people who brought us Facing the Giants and Fireproof, is the best movie I have seen in a long, long time, maybe ever.  I laughed and cried and then laughed (the Snake Kings scene is HILARIOUS!) and cried some more.  Real tears, running down my face.  It is so profound and potentially life changing that all I can do is tell you to go see it.   I could never do it justice.  Just go.  Take your daddy, your brother, your church, your coworkers, just take the whole town!  It is a must see!!

It came in #5 the first week in the box office.  That is pretty impressive for a Christian movie.  We should really get the word out there and get more people to see it.  It truly should be in that #1 spot but more importantly, everyone should be given the opportunity to see it and put the message to work in their own lives.

Here's the trailer.  No way could I even begin to say it better.
