Reel 2 Real
( 2 )
Reel to Real is our look at the culture as expressed in the popular movies of our times. The Bible tells us that the Apostle Paul was very much in touch with the culture of his time. In the Bible we see Paul in Athens discussing with philosophers the concept of God and the nature of truth. In Acts 17:28 Paul even goes so far as to quote some of the non Christian poets of the day to make his points.
These poets in Paul’s day were the “story tellers”. They were the social commentators and the thinkers that were grappling with the human condition. In a similar way many of the modern movie makers are the “story tellers” of our day. They are the social commentators and they often are wrestling with issues of faith, morality, purpose and meaning.
We don’t necessarily agree with every statement or concept presented in every movie that we explore, but we do look for the kernels of truth, the overriding “God themes” that can be found in the movies we will consider. Some movies we consider are fiction, others, true historical narratives. Like in the theater, popcorn will be available as we view clips from a particular film and then explore the truth embedded there.
The movies and stories that we will be exploring this year include:

Breakfast club is an opportunity for you to come, bringing friends, family, coworker and neighbors to a free breakfast and life story presentation. Nothing moves us like hearing first hand a powerful life story, told by the person that lived it. Our goal in these events is to inspire, encourage and challenge. We hope that the ever changing stories from a diverse background of different speakers will help you believe in the power of life change, both for yourself and others you know. That these stores will help you to find the courage to face your life challenges. Most of all we hope these stories will help you realize that you are never alone; that there is a source of supernatural power to help you with life’s greatest challenges. Come, eat, listen, be inspired and challenged!
