Tomorrow, January 28, 2022, should be marked on your calendar because you DO NOT want to miss The Most Reluctant Convert, a film depicting the journey of C.S. Lewis from avowed atheist to influential Christian. American Decency (203 E. Main St., Fremont) will be showing this movie, starring Max MacLean, at 7:00 PM. Due to wartime scenes and difficult family relationships this film is NOT recommended for children under the age of 13.
C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia is a hit with young and old alike, having been turned into movies, audio dramas, and stage plays in England and the U.S. alike. He was a prolific author, writing fantasy, science fiction, and many others that are non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain. He wrote more than 30 books which have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold millions of copies. His influence has spanned the globe; it is truly amazing what God can do with an individual who He has transformed.
The story of C.S. Lewis’ journey from darkness to light is one that will be beneficial, sometimes challenging, and is a contemporary example which calls us to continue to pray, with faith, that God will save our loved ones into a loving and vibrant relationship with their Creator.
There are two things which are decidedly different from most of the movies and films we have shown in the past. It’s our desire that you won’t let either of them dissuade you from attending this wonderful film THIS FRIDAY. Here they are:
1. There is a charge of $11 for adults and $9 for children (plus tax and handling of $1.49 per ticket) that is affiliated with this event—we are NOT charging for this event; it comes from the company that is promoting the movie and making it available to venues like ours. BUT DO NOT LET THAT DETER YOU! If you are not able to afford this movie, we will cover the cost for you or cover whatever portion you are unable to pay. Go to https://faithcontentnetwork.brushfire.com/themostreluctantconvert/524808 to get your ticket. Tickets may also be purchased at the door. IF you are needing one of the discounted tickets mentioned above, please either let us know early at Kimberly@americandecency.org or let us know at the door.
2. C.S. Lewis was an intellectual – a deep thinker – and as this is a story in his own words, detailing his thoughts and life from childhood through conversion, there will naturally be some deeper moments. BUT DO NOT LET THAT DETER YOU! Lewis’ story is a compelling one and Max MacLean’s portrayal of this influential author grips the viewer, taking him/her on that wonderful spiritual journey from atheist to beloved of Christ.
We are willing to help pay for tickets and are urging people to join us because we believe it will be an encouragement to those who attend; and most importantly, as C.S. Lewis glorified God with his transformed life, this film glorifies God in telling his story.
Please, bring family and friends; join us on January 28 at 7 PM for a look into the life of one who truly knew what it was to be changed and in turn, changed the world.
