God's Not Dead 2

(Disclosure:  I received this information to pass on to my readers.  All opinions shared are my own.)

I have to be honest, my husband and I finally got to watch God's Not Dead the other night.  It was such a good movie for families with older children to watch.  My 7 & 8 would lose interest in it, but I could see my 10 year old watching it all the way through.  When we watch movies late at night, I usually fall asleep, but as we were watching this, I couldn't because it is such a great movie.  I thought it was funny that the next day is when I heard about the sequel coming.  That's just the way God works.

About the movie:

Scheduled to be released in theaters Easter 2016, God's Not Dead 2 will have audiences standing unashamedly and firmly in their faith during a time when it seems increasingly unfavorable and divisive to do so in the public square.  The film takes audiences back to Hope Springs, Arkansas…home not only of Hadleigh University, but also of Martin Luther King Jr. High School, where beloved teacher of the year Grace Wesley helps students understand and enjoy history.  Grace's love of teaching, her love of life, and her love of people all come from the same place: her love of Christ.  So when Brooke, a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, finds Grace at a coffee shop, their conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing with Brooke the hope she finds in Christ.  However, when Brooke asks an honest question about Jesus during a lesson Grace is teaching about Dr. King and Gandhi, Grace's answer lands her in big trouble-almost before she finishes giving her reasoned response.  With the principle and superintendent teaming up with a zealous civil liberties group represented by an attorney with no love lost for God, Grace faces an epic court case with, the help of a sympathetic and charismatic defense lawyer that could cost her the career she had always dreamed of-and expel God from the classroom once and for all.  In a story that could easily be pulled from today's headlines, it's good to remember some things will always remain the same:  "God IS Surely Alive!"

This is one movie I can't wait to go see.
