Hey folks. Hope this finds you all well.
I am facillitating a discussion group with the youth at my church that is based on biblical principles found in movies. We watch all or part of a movie and discuss the relevant scriptural issues we find.
This week’s movie is a softball. We watched Les Mis last Sunday night (the one from a few years ago with Liam Neeson) and this week we will discuss it.
The obvious theme is Grace shown by the Bishop to Valjean and how Valjean shared that grace, contrasted to Javert’s being a slave to the law, and showing no grace.
Does anyone out there have any specific examples that you think would resonate with teens? I have a number of ideas, but I don’t want to cloud the brain trust with them just yet.
Also, does anyone know of any good resources for facillitating this kind of class? Scriptural concepts in modern film?
