The Pastor's Post

            The other night I watched the Oscars.  I agreed with some of the awards, didn’t agree with other awards, and had no opinion on some of the awards.  Of course, I hadn’t seen all of the movies that were nominated so I don’t feel that I could offer my opinion on the awards of which I have no knowledge (I know that can be hard to do; to keep opinions to ourselves when we don’t have all the facts.  But we need to try).

            In case you haven’t seen all the movies, here is a brief synopsis for each of the eight movies nominated as best picture (from USA Today): 

-       "Birdman" follows a washed-up actor's attempt to make a comeback in a Broadway play.

-       "American Sniper" tells the story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

-       "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is a mystery farce set in a famous hotel in the fictional Republic of Zubrowka.

-       A team of mathematicians struggles to decipher a Nazi code during World War II in "The Imitation Game." 

-       "Selma" recounts Martin Luther King's leadership of the struggle for civil rights in the United States in 1964.

-       The story of Stephen Hawking and Jane Wilde's relationship is told in "The Theory of Everything." 

-       An instructor's drill sergeant approach to teaching at a music conservatory provides the conflict in "Whiplash."

-       “Boyhood” is a coming-of-age drama that took a total of twelve years to make.

I have seen “Birdman”, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, and “The Imitation Game”.  I hope to see the rest and am particularly interested in “Selma” and “Whiplash”.

      During this Season of Lent, as we are called to be more intentional about examining who we are and our relationship to God, movies can be a great catalyst for that reflection.  As you watch these eight top rated movies of the year, or any other movie or show, where do you find God and what do you find God saying to you?  The presence of God is made known to us in an infinite numbers of ways, movies included.  Watch closely and let me know what you discover. 

Blessings for your Lenten journey,

Pastor Brady
