Most of us don’t go to the movies to strengthen our faith—unless we’re going to a Christian movie, of course. Faith-based films such as War Room and I Can Only Imagine are admittedly designed to teach and inspire their faith-based audiences.
But sometimes, secular films can do the same thing.
Today, on this addition of The Plugged In Show, we look at a few of them and explore how flicks right in the middle of the pop-culture stream can inspire us, challenge us and even draw us closer to God.
Then after we finish our stroll through this spiritual air, we’ll make our way to a California rental home and spend some time with Marcel the Shell With Shoes On. This animated mollusk husk first came to fame in a small series of YouTube videos. Now he has his own PG movie, and it’s sweeter—and deeper—than you might think.
So join host Kristin Smith and the rest of the Plugged In gang as we dive into these topics, both big and small. And once you’re through listening to us talk, we’d love to listen to you.
