Yesterday I had the most thought provoking Sunday.
I am not a regualr churchgoer although I am definitely a Christian, but a serious of events happened to both The Foxx and I over the last couple of weeks which have been mind altering.
The Foxx was given a USB stick from a work mate with a couple of movies on it one of them was a film we both wanted to see and the other was Machine Gun Preacher a movie starring Gerard Butler I happen to think this Scots actor is a hunk so we decided to sit down and watch this one first. The first 15 mins were all blood, gore, drugs and swearing and by that time I had all but given up watching. But I am glad I stuck it out, please have a look at some film reviews if you want to find out more about this extraordinary man.
This is the real Sam childers who, builds Orphanages in Sudan and rescues children from Joseph Kony, you may remember that the Utube video made about this man ( Kony ) went viral just last month. When The Foxx returned the USB stick to his workmate he wanted to know what we thought of the movie, I wanted to know which came first the movie or the video, also had the Preacher really been a killer and drug dealer.
If you enjoyed the Movie and want to know more about the man why not come and meet him on Sunday he is preaching at our church, he said, you could have knocked me down with a feather, He is American we are in Australia all of the comoponents were falling right into place before my very eyes. was this some kind of message. ? The Foxx and I could hardly wait for Sunday and somewhere in the middle of the service I felt changed I felt protected and I felt loved.
When I read back this post I am convinced that it seems silly to have written it. Nothing financial here, nothing anyone else can expect to understand, but down in my core I feel changed
