We watched a movie called "Facing the Giants", last night. Now, we are not "movie people", so you can take our advice having been forewarned. That being said, we really liked the movie. The message is that with God, all things are possible. This is a Christian movie made by a Baptist church in Georgia. The cast was all volunteer. It was very refreshing to see a movie that promoted the power of prayer. I find it strange how so many people will place value in the occult or in "luck", but they find the things of God difficult to believe.
Anyway, I would definitely recommend this movie. It is a film about football, but not. Here is the "official" description:
From the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL comes a new, action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team … and himself.
In his six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.
However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field … and off.
With God, all things are possible …
