A short Christmas message with a movie suggestion
We are supposed to write a personal Christmas message to our readers today. However, I think you have heard more than enough from me this past year and so I am instead encouraging you to read the several wonderful pieces submitted by our staff.
One thing I want to share, though, even though it isn’t really a Christmas item per se, is a wonderful, absolutely beautiful, 90-minute online video that I just recently came across. I found the dramatized true story of world famous Pediatric Neurosurgeon, Dr. Benjamin Carson, to be really inspiring. It is perfect for a Christmas holidays family movie night. There are a lot of wonderful messages in this high quality production that will leave your mind and heart stirred.
I have put it on this page, but you can also order the DVD for viewing on a larger screen than on a computer. Amazingly, I first saw the video, unintentionally, on my tiny iPhone screen. It happened as I was going through my Facebook news feed at bedtime and came across the movie that someone had posted.
It was rather ridiculous watching a movie on my phone, which I have never done before, but I was so captivated that I could not put it down.
Later, I watched the movie again with some of my family on my computer screen (the free online version isn’t high quality enough for television viewing, but is excellent on a computer.)
I cannot remember a movie in recent months that has inspired me so much and left me thinking about its messages for many days afterwards, as this one did. And the classical music (loved by Dr. Carson) in the background in several parts of the movie gives it another, higher dimension.
So, if you can find the time, please do watch this video. You will not regret it. This is the kind of movie that is greatly needed today to uplift people's spirits.
By the way, I suspect you will be hearing a lot more about Dr. Carson in the months ahead from what I have been reading about him. Seems he might possibly have a chance of becoming the kind of black president that all Americans could agree is a truly great man with a heart of gold and a brilliant mind.
To illustrate what I mean by this previous sentence, take a look at the following items where the real Dr. Carson (astonishingly very similar to the Dr. Carson portrayal in the movie) is presented. This man seems to be one very wonderful person - and by the way, one who has a high regard for need to have a regular prayer life.
