DVD Review - This Is Our Time

About the DVD
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and AlĂ© (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.


My Take on the DVD
This is a very powerful Christian movie. It is a family movie but probably not for very young children.

It is an amazing story about an organization which helps children in India and the young couple who decide it is God's calling to travel to India and assist with the children. The organization is real.

God has a purpose for all of us. We need to allow God to direct us in that purpose and live our life the way he wants us to live it.

In this movie a young woman dies and the husband and friends begin to show , what is normal, real signs of frustration and questioning of God's purpose. They try to find the meaning in their grief and answer the question WHY did this woman of God lose her life when she was serving Him.

As the movie progresses you see the purpose develop in the loss and how their efforts serve God's purpose to assist with the mission and children in India.

An underlying question is asked many times in the movie: WHO IS GOD ASKING ME TO BE?

I think after viewing this movie you will begin to think about your own life and regard the purpose for your life in a different light. It is a movie worth watching.
