Meet the Mormons

I don’t intend to make movie reviews a staple of this blog, but I wanted to put in a plug for this film that just opened in theaters last Friday. I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to.

I was worried it might be really cheesy and sugarcoated or poorly filmed or dead boring. It was none of these. I was engaged and even entertained throughout, and the filming was all very professional and seamless. The only thing I can really complain about is the narrator was perhaps too perky.

The film doesn’t try to preach or defend any particular points of doctrine or church policy. It’s a documentary about the lives and experiences of six people who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

I’m glad this was a film that I can highly recommend. But then, I’m a Mormon. What I really want is to know what other people think of Meet the Mormons.

Happy Yarning!

Good News

Now for something vastly more important than yarn or novels.

This weekend Christians all over the world celebrate the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He lived and died so all humankind could live again. Because of Him, life does not end after death, and life can be a joy while it lasts.

I’d say that’s good news.

Happy Easter.

Enjoy a short uplifting video produced by my church.

Or read about Jesus Christ in the New Testament: MatthewMarkLuke, or John.
