Breakthrough Movie Triumphs! – Kidologist.com – Children’s Ministry Christian Article

My family and I got to watch an early release of this film in our home recently and were riveted to the screen. Breakthrough grabs your heart and never lets go! All of the characters are so relatable and real. Their faith is called up and challenged as relationships are strained and strengthened. Of course, you are rooting for the recovery of the boy at the center of the saga, but he isn’t the only one who experiences a miracle…

Seeing and Believing 203 | Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Dexter Fletcher’s Rocketman – Christian Article

http://traffic.libsyn.com/capcpod/203_Godzilla__King_of_Monsters_and_Rocketman.mp3 Two major figures: Godzilla and Elton John duked it out this week to see which one of them would be king of the multiplex, but which of them will be king of Seeing & Believing’s heart? Wade and Kevin had plenty of affection for the 2014 Godzilla reboot, but is the latest film a worthy successor or a mere pretender to the throne? Meanwhile, musical biopics haven’t been getting much love from the show lately, despite Bohemian Rhapsody‘s Oscars.…

Persuasion 167 | Podcastin’ in the Rain, with Gina Dalfonzo – Christian Article

http://traffic.libsyn.com/capcpod/167_Podcastin_in_the_Raid_with_Gina_Dalfonzo.mp3 When La La Land released in 2016, connections were made to the 1952 classic musical, Singin’ in the Rain. Both featured a brilliant case, lively song and dance numbers, and love interests that first meet in the midst of Hollywood traffic. But Singin’ in the Rain has a decidedly saccharine tone absent from La La Land. It depicts both love and career as gloriously positive and hopeful. And it has the happily-ever-after ending that La La Land lacks (but…

Seeing and Believing 201 | Chad Stahelski’s John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum and Patrick Creadon’s Hesburgh – Christian Article

After last week’s big 200th-episode blowout, Seeing & Believing is back to its regularly scheduled programming with reviews of two films about two exceptional individuals. Keanu Reeves is back to his headshot-dispensing ways in the third chapter of the John Wick action franchise, Parabellum. If something with a bit less mayhem is more your cup of tea, the guys also take a look at Patrick Creadon’s documentary about Father Ted Hesburgh: priest, presidential advisor, and erstwhile leader of the University…

Persuasion 166 | Get in, Losers. We’re Talking Mean Girls. – Christian Article

http://traffic.libsyn.com/capcpod/166_Mean_Girls.mp3 Just as Regina George invited loser Cady Heron shopping, Mean Girls invited itself into our cultural narratives with its acerbic jabs and absurdly comedic happenings. Mean Girls is both silly and serious, offering us a snapshot of the inner-workings of high school cliques and every human heart. We can all relate to Cady, the new girl at school who doesn’t understand the social rules that are second nature to everyone else. Some misfits welcome her kindly, but when the…

Agent Romanoff and the Furious Love of God – Escape to Reality – Christian Article

  One of the greatest mistakes we can make, is we undervalue the love of Almighty God. We put his wild, reckless love in a box of undersized belief and we bury it under a temple of tradition. God’s love is this. God’s love is that. We think we have it all figured out. Except we don’t. We have not even scratched the surface of his love for us. Love, like the God who gives it, is far greater than…

Persuasion 164 | Behind the Silver Screen, with Alissa Wilkinson – Christian Article

http://traffic.libsyn.com/capcpod/164_Behind_the_Silver_Screen_with_Alissa_Wilkinson.mp3 Stories are powerful vehicles for sharing values, emotions, information, and history. Everyone loves a good story! We thrive on stories great and small, from the mundane to the epic. Many of our cultural stories are passed along via the silver screen, where storytelling meets the art of presenting characters and sights and sounds in ways that affect us at our core. A good movie is a shared narrative that beckons us to partake of it together, to learn and…
