A Very Important Movie

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace, the movie, is the story of how William Wilberforce became a Christian and then worked to ban the English slave trade–quite literally changing the world as the British navy refused to allow slave trading by any nation. The preview is at http://www.amazinggracemovie.com/. The movie opens 2/23.

Of course, I’ve not yet seen the movie, but I know the story. It’s a dramatic story of how the church should relate to the state, bearing prophetic witness to a nation’s sins to compel change for the benefit of the vulnerable of society. Anyone will lobby to seek his own interest–it’s the church’s role to seek the interest of those who cannot speak for themselves.
