Detective Pikachu

In Detective Pikachu, Tim is looking for his father. He leaves no stone unturned, and (spoilers) coincidently helps save the whole city from a plot which would stop the peaceful coexistence of Pokemon and humans. Eventually, he finds his father, and it’s a happy ending.

Luke 15:8-10 talks about a woman who looks for a lost coin: she does everything to find it and then rejoices when she does. In the same way, God looks for people who are lost and celebrates when they follow Him.

Pray for people you know that don’t have a relationship with Jesus, that they would come to know Him.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Have you guys seen the new Jumanji? It’s hilarious. I really enjoyed both of them. Something about The Rock and Kevin Hart together just works!

There’s a part in the movie when they realise that they’re the wrong characters and the skills they currently had weren’t working. It struck me that we’re like that too. When we’re trying to be something we’re not, things are difficult. God has given us each unique skills, passions and strengths for a reason.

What has God put in your hands, and are you using it? Or are you trying to be something you aren’t?

Abominable

Abominable follows the story of Yi as she tries to get a Yeti, Everest, to his family. We also discover that Yi wishes to visit all the bucket list items her late dad left for her. Along the way they have many obstacles and adventures.

When Yi finally gets Everest home, she realises that she actually went to all of the places on the bucket list!

Life can be chaotic and confusing. Sometimes it’s hard to know where we’re headed. But God always knows, always has a plan and often it is only in looking back that we see how beautifully he has orchestrated things.

Star Wars Episode XI: The Rise of Skywalker

#spoileralert for anyone who hasn’t seen the latest Star Wars movie! This movie is jam packed with themes of redemption and forgiveness and it’s hard not to draw similarities to the gospel. In particular, we see Kylo Ren wresting with his past decisions and being given the chance to redeem himself. The theme of turning from darkness to the light is strong, and so relevant for us as Christians.

It doesn’t matter how far you’ve strayed; God will be there to welcome you home. No sin is too great for God to forgive. Just ask Him.
