Hey NHCC Family and Friends,

I promised to send this weekly email on Tuesdays during our current “At the Movies” series so that those of you who missed the previous week’s message could watch. Click here to see how The Revenant surprisingly illustrates the evidence for God through nature (something which theologians call “general revelation”).

Note that the video quality isn’t quite as good as it usually is because of the way we have to post this. Copyright restrictions require that we limit access to our internal communications channels so this is not available on our app or website.

As for this Sunday, we’ll be looking at a movie that is a lot more cerebral by comparison though it still does have a few tense and dramatic moments. Arrival, starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner has been nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best Picture. The DVD/Blu-Ray/4K disc was just released to RedBox today (plus it’s available through all of the online streaming services) so, if you haven’t seen it yet, you still have time. It provides another amazing illustration of God’s presence and power in our lives, which I will explain on Sunday.

See you then!
