My Prayer For You

Pastor’s Prayer for 25 June 2017

O merciful God,
whatever You may deny me,
do not deny me this love.
Save me from the idolatry of loving the world,
or any of the things of the world.
Let me never love any creature
but for Your sake and in subordination to Your love.
Take full possession of my heart;
raise there Your throne
and command there as You do in heaven.
Being created by You, let me live to You;
being created for You,
let me ever act for Your glory;
being redeemed by You,
let me render to You what is Yours
and let my spirit ever cleave to You alone.
– John Wesley

The Open Table

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman, featuring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Robin Wright

Rated PG-13

–Review by Ashley Linne

While it isn’t a perfect movie, Wonder Woman is officially my favorite superhero movie of all time. And for me, that’s saying a lot. There are many extremely important and timely themes in Wonder Woman that are being highlighted in other reviews, and I’m fairly sure, I won’t do it justice (pun intended) here. This film has been successful on multiple levels and has layers of meaning to be found if you’re looking.

I could be biased here, but I think this film is quite “Christian.” What I mean by that is, Diana’s mission is fueled not by revenge or selfish gain, but by compassion. She hears about the suffering of innocent people—even though they’re total strangers and beings completely new to her—and she sees the opportunity to help. Instead of turning a blind eye, giving in to pressure from others, or shying away in fear, Diana heads in to battle on behalf of those who cannot do it for themselves. read more…
