Movie Reviews

www.Pluggedinonline.com

Plugged In is a Focus on the Family publication designed to help equip parents, youth leaders, ministers and teens with the essential tools that will enable them to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. Entertainment is a potent influence on our culture for both good and evil. Through our reviews and discussions of that entertainment, we hope to spark intellectual thought, family discussion, spiritual growth and a strong desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8. "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ ."”

Devotional

www.Upperroom.org/devotional

“The Upper Room magazine's mission is to provide a model of practical Christianity, accessible in varied formats, to help people feel invited and welcomed into God's presence to:

     listen to scripture as God's personal message, linking their stories to God's story

     commune with God in prayer

     see their daily choices and small acts of obedience as part of God's work

     realize our connection through Christ as a universal family of believers

     encounter the living Christ and be transformed into Christ 's likeness.”

 

“UMTV is an initiative of United Methodist Communications. As a result of Sept. 11, we feel there’s a renewed desire among people to improve their quality of life. We at UMTV are interested in telling stories about people making a difference and stories that talk about moral and ethical challenges we now face as a culture. These are story ideas any local news director or assignment editor would be interested in producing, but often lack resources with which to do so. We want to inspire and provoke thought with our segments.”

“Through its five divisions, The Barna Group provides primary research (The Barna Research Group); communications tools (BarnaFilms); printed resources (BarnaBooks); leadership development for young people (The Josiah Corps); and church facilitation and enhancement (Transformation Church Network).

It accomplishes these outcomes by providing vision, information, evaluation and resources through a network of intimate partnerships. “
