For this series each week we will recommend movie(s) to watch to assist us in focussing on each week's theme. We will include a content link to assist you in deciding if the content of each movie is too graphic for you and/or your family.

Read Ecclesiastes 12:9-14

Sister Act (Rated PG-13) Content link

  • How does Deloris re-focus the nuns from rules to life?

The Mission (Rated PG) Content link

  • Horrors have been committed in the name of God. Can a community be healed from religious wounds and reconsider God?

Chocolat (PG-13) Content link

  • How can we be aware when pointless religious rules are robbing us from joys in life?

For the kids and families  Smallfoot (Rated PG) Content link

  • They live according a community rule written on stones, kept and interpreted by their spiritual leader, the Stonekeeper (voiced by Common), who literally wears the law/stones in a papal-type vestment. The yetis don’t question the authority or logic of the stones. When someone does ask a question, the Stonekeeper (who feels like a mix of Moses and the pope) repeats the community’s mantra to just “push the questions down.” How do we teach our kids rules/boundaries, but not in a way which limits their cognitive development?

Listen to I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For  by U2 video with lyrics link

  • Picture Qoheleth singing this. Is Ecclesiastes and this song an anthem for doubt or Spiritual Enlightenment?
