"There is a way to be good again."

Alli and I are at the Willow Creek Group Life conference, and so far it's been great! Too much to go into detail here (plus... I'm still processing)... but one of the "gifts" from the conference was that we got to go to a special screening of the movie "The Kite Runner". It's based on a book by the same name and is about a boy from Afghanistan. It's one of the best, most impactful movies I've ever seen. Not "best" or "impactful" in bright cheery ways.... the story line is very sad and some parts are hard to watch. But it seems to paint an accurate picture of the changes that have taken place in the Middle East over the last several decades. Watching it filled me with a desire to visit the Middle East, to somehow learn to interact with people in that culture. To be used by God to bring true freedom and peace. And in an odd way, the movie is also story of redemption.

The movie isn't being released until November, but I highly recommend see it when it does come out. It's excellent.
