Run the Race

Tomorrow night may be the last time you'll be able to see Run the Race in a theater. I really thought it was a slam dunk, to add a metaphor from a third sport into the mix! It's about football playing brothers who switch over to track.

It was great writing, cinematography, directing, and a no holds barred presentation and acceptance of the Gospel! This is what we should be praying for more of! It shows a transformed life, the one thing a no one can deny! Though this is a fictional story, my prayer is that it will inspire people to search out real testimonies. If you've never met someone who was transformed by a relationship with Jesus Christ, click Testimonies here or below to read and hear several real ones. Someone told my bride, Joyce, after she gave her life to the Lord that she was the first miracle that person saw.

By the way, in case you're not interested in sports films, this is what  Joyce had to say:
Frankly, I was less keen to see it because I was a little done with sports movies, but this is not really a sports movie.  It is about the relationships -- with God, family, brothers. Well produced, excellent acting and script. The dialog is very real. 
A gym buddy told me to be sure to see it! He loved it, and especially remarked on the work of Francis Fischer, as the godmother of the featured brothers. My friend also appreciated the honesty of the journey. Don't hesitate to invite everyone to this one.

See how Olympic champion Eric Liddell ran the race after . His story is begun in Chariots of Fire, winner of four Oscars in 1981, story in Beyond the Chariots. Watch it online and book a live performance.
