Continuing our ongoing conversation – Jesus said, “I am the life…”
“Without the life, there is no living”
Ever watch reality TV? Ever wonder why you do? After all, is that really reality?
We recently watched a fascinating French movie, Les Femmes du 6eme etage (The Women on the 6th Floor) at the Glenwood Arts Theatre over off of Metcalf. Interesting movie! Once you get past the subtitles, you discover a cinematic gem.
To summarize, the movie is essentially about the Spanish maids who live on the 6th floor of the apartment building where they serve as domestics for the wealthy people who live there. The movie is set in Paris in the early 1960’s.
Without giving too much away, suffice it to say that in the unfolding drama, spiced with delightfully wry humor, we discover that the maids (who have so little), find greater joy in life than the owners ( who seem to have so much).
Why is that?
Faith is an essential element to the equation, in the movie and in life. If you believe that God has created you with a purpose; that His love in Jesus Christ is an absolute truth in your life; then you discover that you are free to truly live!
And that is what I am eager to discuss with you this weekend! Please join me for our Palm Sunday celebrations!
