Back in May I shared the news that a great new movie for everyone… but especially dads and dads-to-be was coming out in September. Well, this Friday it will be here. Details and trailers are below, but I wanted to point out that a movie’s lifespan at the theatres depends greatly on its opening weekend. Therefore, I want to encourage you to go and see the movie this weekend, whether it’s with your friends, your son(s), your father, your men’s group, or whomever… just GO!
I’m hoping to have a group (or perhaps several groups) from our men’s ministry at Southside invading one of the theatres here in Jacksonville this Friday night.
Here’s the trailer for the movie…
Here’s some information about the movie…
From Fathers.com -
Why should you see Courageous? The movie is full of lessons for dads. In just about every scene, there’s a powerful truth or insight that we could stop and talk about, probably for hours.
To get some snapshots of what the movie is about, see this video of the song “Courageous” by Casting Crowns – from their new CD, Come to the Well.
As the song says, “Where are you, men of courage?
You were made for so much more.”
Isn’t that a strong call for all of us to step up in our role as fathers?
You probably know by now that there’s a clear faith emphasis in this film. Maybe you’re on board with that, but even if you aren’t, I hope you’ll still give it a chance. I’m quite certain there’s still a lot in this movie that will inspire you to be the father your children need. Find out more or reserve your tickets at courageousthemovie.com.
Also, there are some fantastic resources available that go right along with the movie’s message. You can get this music from Casting Crowns (now available for pre-order) here. Or, see the new books available that complement the movie, such as The Resolution books for men and women, and my new book, The 21-Day Dad’s Challenge, which is out very soon.
Here are some ministries that have partnered with the folks who produced the movie.
Here’s Courageous the Movie’s YouTube channel with lots of clips, reviews, etc., from and about the movie.
I hope to see you at the movie.
Grace and Truth,
