Film Weekend

 

Last weekend UKH had its 2nd Film Weekend.

4 films + 2days + the Gospel = WIN!

This year we headed further afield to a small town called Tanvald up in the mountains in North Bohemia, and as you can see from the photo the snow had beaten us to there. The snow, though meaning it was cold, very cold, made our walk Saturday afternoon beautiful and had me regretting that I did not bring my camera when seeing the sunset across the snow and the forest lit up in hues of pink.

Any way this was primarily a film weekend and so obviously we watched films.

The first film we watched was Pixars The Incredibles, which Linda then had us thinking about our identity and who is special?, is everyone special?, and showing how we are made in the image of God.

The second film was The Prestige, where Judith got us talking about how these 2 illusionists fought for prestige and thinking about where they found their satisfaction and if they pursued it in the right way.

The third film was The Bourne Ultimatum, and I gave a talk about how we are responsible for what we do, responsible for our sin, and asked how can we be redeemed showing that the only way we can be is by God taking action himself in the form of Jesus.

Lastly we watched the recent visual CG feast that is Avatar, and Jeremy talked about our inherent desire for more than this world offers, and how we are longing to be dwelling with God.

All in all 19 people were at this weekend and there was a lot of banter (inc. Jeremy and Tereza snow wrestling), lots of ping pong (in various forms inc. ninja style) , and several ling conversations even going into the realms of philosophy. I think it was a success and I am looking forward to when we get to do it again next Autumn.
