My wife and I were deeply blessed by this true story of love and grace. A few weeks ago we join others Canadian Christian leaders from Vancouver’s Lower Mainland for a private screening of ‘Same Kind of Different as Me’ the new movie which will be release on Oct 20, 2017.
In short, the story it’s about a fine art dealer in Dallas, Ron Hall seemingly had it all: wealth, success, mistress, and social status. Then, God spoke to his wife, Debbie, in a dream — and his world completely changed.
The movie illustrates beautifully that it’s not the color of our skin that divides us, it’s the condition of our hearts. It’s a great story that will shake your paradigm and challenge you with some deep fundamental questions about friendship, love and loyalty.
It is vital for the viewer to understand that both Ron and Denver(the main characters) come from two very different places, perspectives and situations in life, and yet they both are changed by this reciprocated relationship.
If Christians want to be the hands and feet of Christ, we need to not judge those that are different from us. That’s why Denver always said, “Whether we’re rich or poor, this earth ain’t no final resting place. We’re all homeless just working our way home.”
The script comes from the New York Times bestseller “Same Kind of Different as Me“, and in the Sony /Pure Flix Entertainment/Paramount Pictures release starring Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, and Jon Voight.
I encourage you to look for this movie around your location and dare to be challenged by the message.
