Sometimes I get grounded from choosing the movies we watch. I have to let other people choose for a while because I get too many heavy dramas that deal with cosmic themes and leave everyone traumatized. I seem to be especially drawn to war films. I don't know why that is.
We recently watched two such films, however, that you might want to see. Though they were gripping stories dealing with difficult themes, they were well-told, compelling films that portray hope and courage.
Gladys Alyward was quite upset about the inaccuracies in the movie, especially the love scene, which she thought soiled her reputation. But Bergman was so moved by the story that she went to Taiwan in 1970 to meet the missionary. She arrived just days after Gladys Alyward had passed away. Bergman fell down beside her bed and wept, and a missionary co-worker of Alyward shared the Gospel message with Bergman, leading her to place her faith in Christ. You can read the story in two parts here and here.
