Movies to enjoy and discuss during Lent
Lent provides the perfect backdrop to watch the thought-provoking true-life story, Of Gods and Men. The award-winning 2010 film explores the faith of eight French monks—living simply and peacefully in Algeria among their Muslim neighbors. Their day-to-day existence is suddenly shattered when violent Islamic terrorists take over the region.
The monks, as individuals and as a brotherhood, must deal with the realities of their dangerous situation. Do they return to France? Do they stay where God has brought them? Do they abandon their Muslin neighbors? This is a stirring story about bravery, humanity and enduring faith. It’s one you won’t soon forget. You can stream Of Gods and Men on Amazon Prime, You Tube, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu.
