Here's an interesting notice form the inbox:

"Gower's immensely popular sermon series "Jesus at the Movies" starts again this Sunday, February 21st at 11:00. For the last few years Gower's Rev. Dr. Kate Crawford and Rev. Marion Davis have been giving the congregation a new perspective on the scriptures during the Lenten season. Marion and Kate invited suggestions from the congregation for movies to preach on this year during Lent. They asked for any interesting or provocative film that the congregation might enjoy in preparation to "do theology" together during Lent, holding the gospel up with contemporary culture."

February 21 The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007) - Luke 4:1-13.  Jesus tempted in the desert.

February 28 Up (2009) - Luke 13:31-35.   Jesus cries over Jerusalem
