Amazing Grace

Filed under: Movies — pearsey @ 7:46 pm

Took the youth to see Amazing Grace the other day. It was good. It goes for about 2 hours though – nearly got a bit slow in the center bit. It just shows what God can do through one person who is passionate about something and won’t give up doing what he’s called to do – even when it all looks like its never going to happen. I thought it was good how they showed that you don’t have to be a “preacher/pastor” to do God’s work, God uses people in everyday jobs, whatever it is. It’s not either/or, they both go together.

Here are a couple of quotes that I liked:
You only feel the thorns when you stop running. (Set in the context of William Wilberforce almost giving up on abolishing the slave trade and found all these problems that started bothering him).

Sometimes God isn’t in the lightning bolt or the storm, He’s in the gentle drizzle.
