Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God … and to their children?
BLC (spearheaded by Living Stones LG) invites you to a movie screening of Courageous, the latest movie by Sherwood Pictures, who brought us acclaimed films like Fireproof.

“Profound without being preachy, ‘Courageous’ never forgets to entertain.” – Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com
“A moving, modern parable not to be missed by anyone who’s always wondering why they don’t make wholesome movies with uplifting messages anymore.” – Kam Williams, NewsBlaze

Romero (Full Movie)

For your viewing pleasure via Sivin Kit:

He started a revolution without guns, without an army, without fear. Because one man’s courage can be the most powerful weapon of all.

“If they kill me, I will rise in the Salvadoran people.”

Romero is a compelling and deeply moving look at the life of Archbishop Oscar Romero of El Salvador, who made the ultimate sacrifice in a passionate stand against social injustice and oppression in his country. This film chronicles the transformation of Romero from an apolitical, complacent priest to a committed leader of the Salvadoran people.

This man of God forced by the unspeakable events going on around him to take a stand – a stand that ultimately leads to his assassination in 1980 at the hands of the military junta.

Archbishop Romero was murdered on March 24, 1980. He had spoken the disturbing truth. Many chose not to listen. As a result, between 1980 and 1989, more than 60,000 Salvadorans were killed. But the struggle for peace and freedom, justice and dignity goes on.

Private Screening: Rising Sun Over Malaya

Thanks to Chin Hor, who was instrumental in making this documentary, we will be having a private screening of “Rising Sun Over Malaya“, today, Friday, 24 February 2012, at 8 pm in The Father’s House.

(Learn more about the documentary here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rising-Sun-Over-Malaya/227706120605222)

This Lent, as we strip down non-essentials, let’s also reexamine the meta-narratives regarding this period of our nation’s history – the Japanese Occupation – and hear from eyewitnesses who lived during that time. And let’s see it on the big screen with a full sound system.

Friday night Lenten prayer and reflection proper will commence next week. Although, viewing this documentary would very much aid our prayer, reflection and intercession for this here country of ours.

All are welcome!
