Our library is a great resource for all types of Christian education and offers a full array of books and movies.
Summer is a very busy time in a farming community! Everything is growing, including the weeds, which seem to grow whether it’s wet or dry, cool or hot. It takes a great deal of diligence for us to keep our crops and flowers healthy and to keep the weeds from taking over. The same is true of our spiritual lives. Unless we are diligent, Satan, who “prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour,” will cause us to slowly move away from an intimate relationship with God and even to compromise our faith. We have some movies in our GLC library that will help us focus on Christ, even when we are busy. Pick up one of the following movies, relax, and grow!
The adult movies include Gospel of Luke #115, Acts of the Apostles #119, and The Life of Jesus (Book of John) #89. All of these are reenactments using only the Scriptures, which means you can listen instead of watching them. I washed dishes, dusted, and folded laundry while I listened. The Gospel of Luke is in both the NIV and the KJV, Life of Jesus (Gospel of John) is in a modern English version, and Acts of the Apostles is in the NIV. We also have two DVDs that are a combination of beautiful photography, Scripture passages, and Christian hymns and praise music. They are King of Creation #80 and How Great Thou Art & Climb Ev’ry Mountain #82. These can also be listened to without watching them. I enjoyed closing my eyes and just listening, but viewing while listening also brings a sense of joy and peace. We have one CD of the Knudtson Family, It Is Well #44.
Our movies for children are not Scripture, but they bring messages that encourage faith in God and godly character. Two movies are based on stories by Max Lucado, and feature the voices of Tim Conway, Don Knotts, Richard Kind and Melissa Disney. Hermie: A Common Caterpillar #37 teaches children that “God loves you just the way you are . . . and that you are indeed truly special!” God tells Hermie several times, “I’m not finished with you yet,” teaching him another important lesson. Milo: The Mantis Who Wouldn’t Pray #26 teaches children that we can trust God to answer our prayers, but His answers come in many ways and might not be what we expect. The third movie, Letters to God #56, is based on the true story of an 8-year old boy with cancer, who began writing letters to God. They end up in the hands of a postman who was searching for meaning in life. This movie has “a message of hope, faith and courage.” It’s a movie that the entire family can enjoy together.
