The Grace Card - Giveaway

thegracecard

It’s been awhile since I’ve sat down to watch a movie.  It has to be something that really sounds interesting to me before I take the time to watch it. My husband on the other hand, loves to watch movies. He often references movies in our conversations and then remembers that I probably have no clue what he’s talking about.  This week we decided to watch a movie together and have a Family Movie Night.  The featured movie was The Grace Card from Graceworks and Calvary pictures.

 

About the Movie:

Mac McDonald is a hurting man who is bitter and angry at the world. His home-life is falling apart and his career is stalled at the police department because of his bad attitude.

Sam Wright never planned on being a police officer. His heart was to be a full-time pastor. But his small start-up church salary doesn’t pay the bills. When Sam is promoted to Sergeant, he second-guesses what his real calling may be.

When Mac and Sam are forced to become partners, will they be able to join forces to help one another when it’s impossible for either of them to look past their differences---especially the most obvious one?

Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD ... and never underestimate the power of God's love.

What We Thought:

I’m not a crier. This movie had me wiping away a few tears from the corners of my eyes at various times. I loved the message. I was very surprised when my husband, the movie guru, said that it was excellent too.  I am thrilled to see good quality Christian movies being created. Because of this movie, I’ve been able to have a couple of good conversations with my kids about grace. Though this movie is rated PG13, I was comfortable with my older children watching the movie with us. There was nothing too violent or gory.

There are lots of ministry resources available on The Grace Card website. This movie lends itself well to a small group discussion or Bible study. You can also keep up with the ins and outs of the movie by following their Facebook page.

Who would like to watch this at their next family movie night?
