Hotel Rwanda (Terry George, 2004) BY: Denis Haack Hotel Rwanda tells the story of Paul Rusesabagina. He never intended to be a hero. He simply made a series of choices, moral choices, and in so doing, became a true hero.
Discernment 301: From Story to Drama BY: Denis Haack Like the exiles in Babylon we find ourselves in uncharted territory as the culture in which we are ordained to live becomes more pluralistic and post-Christian. Uncharted in terms of a list of proof-texts that provide rules for every circumstance, that is, but not unscripted. We have a script and can learn to live in it so completely that we see everything in terms of itóeven issues and questions that go beyond the details of the script.
Brokeback Mountain (Ang Lee, 2005) BY: Denis Haack How can we live passionately while restraining our unhealthy desires? Self-help pundits and legalistic preachers insist otherwise, but resolutions and rules are insufficient to check desire, and triumphant testimonies to the contrary fail to prove the case.

Saved! (Brian Dannelly, 2004): Five Movies That Weren't Nominated for the Oscar in 2 BY: Andrew H. Trotter, Jr. If you didn't catch them when they came out, add these films to your DVD wish list.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I donít much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
