Hotels, Keith Green, and ...Rwanda?
So here's the thing: my wife and I are thinking about this movie we just saw and listening to Keith Green on the radio and Amy lights up: everything kind of falls into place. The movie? Hotel Rwanda. It is basically about the genocide between the Tutsis and Hutus in the 1990's and is based upon actual events. Alone it is a sad and thought provoking film; coupled with the power of Keith Green's lyrics in Asleep in the Light about the need for the church to DO something it is bittersweet. Amy began to devise a plan to have the Sunday school class see the movie, hear the music, and kick the whole thing around. We are thinking March 4 (Saturday) we want to get everyone together at our house. The specifics are a bit flexible, but the early stages look something like this: 8 p.m., a few bucks thrown in, we'll grab pizza. What does everyone think?
