Movie begins strong

As reported in this story on BRnow.org, the movie, "I Can Only Imagine," opened last weekend with great attendance among moviegoers. The movie tells the story behind the top Christian song by the same name. I’m glad to see the success of this project by the Erwin Brothers. I interviewed Andy Erwin in early February and wrote about his story behind the production of this film. It was obvious that the story line would grab many hearts and draw them to theaters. It happened!

I also respect the transparency of Bart Millard, the singer in MercyMe who wrote the song and shared his spiritual journey of pain and hope. His courage is making an impact on believers and non-believers. I hope churches will use this movie as an evangelistic tool. If you have not seen the movie yet, reserve a time to enjoy it with family and friends.
This week’s print edition of the Biblical Recorder includes some great information about North American missions and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. Pray that Baptists will be very generous with our gifts to support the sacrificial ministries of our missionaries.
In my editorial this week, I shared about my recent trip to Israel with 32 men. Most of these men are from North Carolina and most are pastors, church staff, directors of missions and staff from Fruitland Baptist Bible College. I enjoyed visiting the sites in Israel and the fellowship with these guys. Those who have made the trip to the Holy Land will understand how it impacted my understanding of God's Word. See my announcement at the end of the colum about a special offer the Recorder will offer to tour groups.
Enjoy your Palm Sunday weekend! He is Risen!.
