The disciples came to him and asked,
“Why do you speak to the people in parables?”- Matthew 13:10 (NIV)
Jesus was the master teacher, yet we never hear him asking followers to memorize or recite the principles he taught. He realized that discipleship was not about lists, but about living – living together while seeking God with all one’s heart, mind, soul, and strength.
Many of Jesus’ most famous teachings were not presented as a list to remember, but in the context of a story. Stories resonate not with the mind but in the heart. In Jesus’ time there were no movies or tv, so he shared his stories with the spoken word – parables now recorded in every copy of the New Testament.
Stories have no less power today. An evening of “entertainment” can convict in a moment or plant a seed that lies dormant until God is ready for it to sprout. Not every seed will become the 4th seed that produces many times what was sown, but the more we sow, the more we are likely to plant the seed that might change the world!
Heart of Illinois Christian Movie Central
Film has the potential to impact many lives, and – frankly – the quality of Christian films has increased greatly over the years. This page will be used to provide information about current or upcoming Christian movies in the Central Illinois area, or of films in the works that may be coming our way.As a growing number of Christians support films, the word will get out and Christian filmmakers will want to see if they’re films will “Play in Peoria.”Occasionally, we will send an email out to the list on such matters of special offers or release dates. If you would like to receive this, please Sign up for Christian Movie Email Updates. Thank you!

*MAYBE* COMING TO OUR REGION:
The films below are currently in the process of seeking distribution and determining where they should play. Lately this often takes the form of online voting. We welcome you to support this effort, but please, Please, PLEASE learn about the film first, watch the trailer (if available – we will host the WORLD PREMIERE of the Beyond the Farthest Star trailer on March 8 in Peoria!), and then, and only then, vote IF, and only IF you plan on supporting the film when it comes to theaters.
We do no good to anybody to have inflated, empty votes for a film, and in the end it reflects worse on our communities to have a lot of votes but few tickets sold. I’d rather sneak in with the vote and then blow out the box office.
I have been watching this film for some time, and can’t wait until it comes out – now planned for some time in 2013.
A trailer should be coming in the next few weeks.
While I had planned on waiting until the trailer comes out for any more promotion of it, after reading the novel (highly recommended) I really can’t wait.
