I recently received a This is Our Time, distributed by Pure Flix, dvd to review. This is Our Time is an inspirational film about what it really means, and what it really takes, to follow the call of God in your life. While following five friends who have just graduated from college, you see how their strong belief in God binds them together.
The movie tells the stories of Luke and Alé , who marry right after school and move to India. They serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine, who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder, who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan who is seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God. They all are trying to make a meaningful difference in the world.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”
I really loved This is Our Time! It is an awesome movie that the whole family can watch together. I loved the characters, the story line, and the way the characters faith in God is portrayed. There is nothing in this movie that little kids can’t watch. One of the characters dies, but her death is not shown, though the funeral, the grieving, and the aftermath of her death are. When she dies, the movie realistically shows how the friendship of the group, and their faith, are tested.
This is Our Time shows that although we may be following God’s plan for our lives that doesn’t mean that every thing is going to go perfectly for us. Even though our lives may not turn out the way “we” have planned, God as a plan for our lives. When we find trouble and heartache along the way, we can rest assured that God is there to comfort us and that His plans are far better than our plans.
While the characters in This is Our Time are fictional, the Embrace a Village is real. There is a short video on the dvd that explains about the village and what it does. When you watch the movie, make sure you go to the dvd menu and watch this video. It is well worth the time.
This is Our Time will be available nationwide on April 16th. I highly recommend you get this movie to share with your family and friends.
