When was the last time Hollywood had a movie featuring an all-Asian cast?
Yeah, it was “The Joy Luck Club” and that was released nearly 25 years ago.
I loved the book and I really was excited to see that it was being made into a movie. Now as we get closer to the release of the movie, I am very anxious about it.

So last week I finally got to see this movie because there was a lot of buzz surrounding it. It was presented to me as a movie that is a must-see because it is a Christian movie that isn’t bad.
Because nearly 95% of all Christian movies I see are so bad. But this one wasn’t. It wasn’t super amazing, but I actually viewed this as a pretty decent film.
But this was a rare treat because unlike all the other Christian movies I have seen, this had a believable story (well, it was based on real events), the acting was competent, and the basic structure of lighting, sound, etc all seemed pretty good.

I still think about how every year we approach Easter and that the message of Christ is kind of lost in it between the sales, the eggs and all that. Or maybe I have been so busy that I can’t really see how much Jesus is being talked.
But I do know that it is so important for the message of the resurrection to reign supreme.
But it’s not an easy thing to just explain to people who don’t know. I mean, how can you really believe a story about a man who rose from the dead?
But it’s true. And that’s the challenge. In this world, it’s hard to imagine the impossible. Unless you are willing to let the impossible be a reality. And that is hard to take in unless you believe in a God who can allow of this to happen.
Maybe this will help me understand and see Easter in a new light. More from the perspective of the outsider. This is a side of the Easter testimony the churches haven’t really taught me how to do well.
Hmmm, something for me to ponder.
What do you get when you take comedy and awful Christian media? You get this podcast that I am so in love with. Good Christian Fun is honest in breaking down some of Christianity’s good and bad media productions like music and movies.
I went to their live show on Saturday and I literally was in tears crying because it is so funny with hosts Kevin and Caroline just talking freely about Christianity like that. They are Christians but they aren’t afraid to be honest. If something sucks, it sucks. If it’s good, it’s good. But man, we have to have a sense of humor and not be overprotective of these things. Not everything in Christian media is good. Some of it is just real bad.
I laughed so hard. Oh it was a riot having guest Matt Gourley also share about his experience.
I can’t wait for this episode to go out to the public. I am listening to this over and over again!
Take a look at the above graphic. Oh I love it!
If you are in a Christian circle, you’ll know what this is about. Christians have these certain lingos that we throw around so often that it either loses meaning or it actually makes the person hearing it react differently that intended. It’s not to say it’s just Christianity. Every group has their own lingo. But having been in a Christian circle pretty much my entire life, I know these terms and it can get annoying.
For example, I shared this.
People have acne and it is a serious condition. But hey, let’s make it a kids toy or something like that.
This also reminds me of people who wear glasses simply for fashion, not a prescription. I wear glasses because I need it to see. How are you turning my condition into a fashion statement?
This is your America!
Well, it’s happened again.
As you can see, I left food in the office fridge on Friday so I can eat it the next day when I came in. When I got there the next day, the food was gone. I don’t know who did it and this is not the first time someone stole my pizza.
I got co-workers who support me. HR is going to investigate as this apparently is an ongoing trend around the building.
WOW! Sam making changes.
