Ok first a couple of trailers for some upcoming films:
First they are making a film about Rich Mullins’ life:
I’m of two minds regarding this first, I really liked Rich Mullins I had the privilege of seeing him in concert I could see that he was really passionate about his music and about getting out the gospel to the disenfranchised. So how do you capture that on film since the man that has that passion is with the Lord? Second if the production quality isn’t excellent what a disservice to those who knew Rich.

And just when you thought this question was answered (Goodbye Rob Bell) comes the movie about hell. I love the info about it and I quote: “Featuring an eclectic group of high profile authors, theologians, pastors, social commentators, musicians, exorcists and people who claim to have experienced the fires of hell firsthand, Hellbound? is a feature-length documentary that asks why we are so bound to the idea of hell and what our view of hell reveals about how we perceive God, the Bible and, ultimately, ourselves” MEH.
Parting shot: When did Christianity suddenly decide that movies were how we discuss theology?
And now for something completely different. How Americans see cricket:

I’m sure that unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or Amish that your aware of the flap about the president of Chick-fil-A stance on traditional marriage (may his tribe increase). Of course this has provoked a media storm with an actress, muppets, and a mayor getting into the act. Now former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has called for a Chick-fil-A appreciation day.
Speaking of things to think hard about; Frank Turk has a posted: “Why Christians are Idiots”. Frank always make me see things from a different perspective even when I don’t want to see that perspective. Especially when it comes to things like culture and the gospel.
Now this disturbing video from Candid Camera Egypt:
