War Room – Preview of New Kendrick Brothers Film

Click Here to See Trailer!!!

On May 21, I was invited to preview the next movie in the line of films by the Kendrick Brothers. If you are not familiar with who they are, these are the filmmakers that brought us Fireproof, Facing The Giants and Courageous.

The Kendrick Brothers are Christian filmmakers that have taken us on several journeys that cover the gamut from marriage, to faith and back to fatherhood. This time that trip takes on an a voyage to restore our faith and ability as it pertains to prayer.

The film is the story of an African-American family that is in turmoil. The disparity between the husband, wife and little daughter is acted out incredibly by a magnificent cast, Patricia Striver, T.C. Stalling, and Alena Pitts. They are a young family is distress as they appear to have it all. But the one thing missing is God.

Along comes an incredible older African-American woman, played by Karen Abercrombie. Her character steals the show, and steers the movie. Her no nonsense approach to helping the young wife and mother to realize who is trying to destroy her marriage and family is direct and will lead you from laughter to tears.

The story is one that opens that door to being clear on the importance of prayer. Using prayer and the power it has as a weapon against the true enemy that invades our relationships. We spent more time fighting each other than fighting the enemy. War Room is a film that helps to show us who the enemy really is, how we can build a strategy to beat him and how to put that strategy into action.

It will be in theaters starting on August 28. I was able to see it early and I am very glad that I did. The Kendrick Brothers have,  once again, brought us a film that is well worth seeing.

I would encourage everyone to have a look at this incredible film. Not often do we get to see films that give us Godly values, and too far often do we see them with African-Americans in premier roles.

 

Just a thought

As I sit here writing this post, I take a few minutes to think about all of the things that I have to be grateful for at this moment in my life. I am very happy and thankful for the love and mercy of God. Without that many of you would be visiting me in the cemetery and leaving some nice flowers on the spot that would mark me and my life. When I take that into consideration, I wonder what I need to be doing to make my legacy known to the world. If I was to leave this place tomorrow, how many people would even know that I existed. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to be famous or extremely admired or known worldwide. I am just wondering if I am doing anything to make the world a better place??? Have I been the best father, husband, friend, employee, mentor, helper, that I can be. Am I using the talent(s) that God has given me to multiply them so that I can return to Him more than He has given to me? Am I being a good stewart with all that the Lord has given me? My wife, my children, my family? Matthew 25:14 tells the story of a man who gave his servants talents, one got five, another got two and the last got one…. Continue reading Just a thought
