“You hate me!” she yelled, and then fell apart in despair, “You just hate me.” I can’t remember the offense my daughter had done or the discipline I handed out at the time, but the conversation afterward was monumental. She thought that allowing (even creating) a consequence meant I was personally upset over what she had done. The truth was, I was letting consequences change thoughts and behaviors that could have far worse effects if allowed to play out later in life. Truth was, I was protecting her. Truth was, I loved her deeply. I explained that the greatest proof of my love was my willingness to be accused of hatred and injustice, while continuing to love, teach and pursue her.
In preparation for the September 5 release of the film, The Identical (starring Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd), City of Peace and its co-producers will launch a series of television specials called “The Identity.” Each half-hour episode that airs during the month of August will feature a prominent Christian leader speaking about a key aspect of what it means to follow God’s call on your life.
Mark your calendars for September 26 and prepare to attend the most honest, but edgy Christian feature film about love, sex and marriage: The Song. As a creative adaptation of Solomon’s wisdom (taken directly from Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Proverbs), The Song speaks forthrightly about the bliss, weaknesses, hardships, and steadfast loyalty that often accompany marriage. Like the contemplative writings of King Solomon, the film doesn’t pull any punches. Its occasional voice-over narration of Bible passages brings complexity to the story, and Solomon’s inner struggles come to life on the screen.

As Hollywood works its way through dramatizing the fantasy novels, several hope to tell a more historical tale of real-world friendship.
The friendship between C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, well known to some devoted fans, may soon be a star of the silver screen along with the elves, dragons, hobbits, and marsh-wiggles of their creation.

Last week, I asked how we would live differently if we aimed to astound Christ. Matthew 8 records how a Roman Centurion amazed Jesus. When I posed the question, I knew the answer would not be by doing more or living a better life. After all, Christ wasn’t amazed by this man’s perfect obedience, work in the community, impact on the world, or well-honed skills in his trade. Instead, Jesus acknowledged his faith, saying that it was greater than anyone else’s in all of Israel.
