This Sunday's Noleap Movie Pick Is: "The Jesus Guy"...


Synopsis: "He looks like Jesus Christ. And preaches like St. Francis of Assisi. Some say he’s “a kook” Others, “a blessing from God.” Barefoot, and clad in a white robe, he’s walked through 47 states [and 13 countries] on a 16-year mission that’s captured media attention from 20/20, Time, and the Wall Street Journal. Yet who is this solitary figure who inspires faith and attracts controversy? 

The Jesus Guy covers the mystical journey of America’s “Barefoot Evangelist.” In a nation that worships money, he’s penniless. In a culture that idolizes celebrities, he has forsaken his identity. Now, on a spiritual quest even he doesn’t fully understand, his faith, and your own, will be tested every step of the way. With the intimacy of single-camera filmmaking, Director Sean Tracey allows us to walk in “The Jesus Guy’s” steps as he encounters both skeptics and believers, changing them for better, for worse, forever."


Feel free to comment after watching the film.

Seeking..



"Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun... there are many millions of suns left, You shall no longer take things at second or third hand... nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books. You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me. You shall listen to all sides and filter them for yourself"


Walt Whitman

Book Of The Month: "Help, Thanks, Wow" by Anne Lamott ...




"Readers of all ages have followed and cherished Anne Lamott’s funny and perceptive writing about her own faith through decades of trial and error. And in her new book, Help, Thanks, Wow, she has coalesced everything she knows about prayer to these fundamentals. It is these three prayers – asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us – that can get us through the day and can show us the way forward. 

In Help, Thanks, Wow, Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they mean to her and how they have helped, and explores how others have embraced these same ideas. Insightful and honest as only Anne Lamott can be, Help, Thanks, Wow is the everyday faith book that new Lamott readers will love and longtime Lamott fans will treasure."
