MOST (Czech for “The Bridge”) is a short drama film from 2003. 

It tells the story of the close relationship between a bridge operator and his young son and the fateful day when both try to head off an impending rail disaster.  A steam train full of hundreds of passengers are unaware of the danger as they head towards an open draw bridge.  When a desperate young woman witnesses an act of virtue beyond imagination, her life is changed forever.

It attempts to convey the power of the Father’s sacrificial love to us in the death of Jesus Christ.  Have a look and see if it adds to your understanding.

The Great Banquet

For the International Day of Prayer 2008 for the Persecuted Church Nina Åström wrote a very moving piece of music called The Great Banquet.
 

 A very profound observation is made in the chorus of the song:

 

 

 

It seems that they’re really afraid of love
Afraid of the freedom that Christ gives
You can imprison me; but I’ll always be free
What I have can never be taken from me

 

The more one reads about Jesus Christ in the gospels and the other NT writings the more we are confronted with the challenge of understanding this freedom Christ gives.

At our Ulladulla Festival 2009 – from October 2nd through to October 10th – we will be exploring what Jesus meant when he said: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”(John 8:36)
