AMAZING TECHNICOLOR GRACE:
Saying (and Watching) Grace at Christmas (Peter Augustine Lawler, 12/20/12, Imaginative Conservative)
So Christmas is all about grace and redemption. It's also about the strange and wonderful person who wanders the world in the hope (conscious or unconscious) about grace. It's also, of course, about the personal, loving, and creative God who became man and wandered among us for a while. What's more wonderful than that?My Christmas list for you the three best movies about the mystery of grace received.
We've liked all three films mentioned very much, and written about one: The Apostle.
And we'd add a few, some almost accidental, entries where characters experience grace and redemption : Groundhog Day; Lars and the Real Girl; The Straight Story; The Big Kahuna; and About Schmidt;
