sometimes you have to watch someone love something to love it yourself
If you see one movie this year see Blue Like Jazz! Blue Like Jazz is an honest look at one man's journey of faith. Don Miller doesn't write what traditional Christians want to hear. He shares openly his feelings about others and about God. He speaks with conviction that stirs in one self the desire to take a better look in the mirror and at one's own heart and motives. It is about faith, compassion, community and giving back to others. It is about loving like Jesus. Don doesn't ask for approval or require readers to like him or agree with his view. He shares his experiences in life and what he learned from them. I highly recommend this movie to believers and unbelievers. Some of my friends who believe in Jesus think it isn't spiritual enough. Some of my unbelieving friends think it is overtly spiritual. I say - just watch it for yourself and form your own opinion, but whatever you decide - enjoy the journey and your adventure with Don.
Changed my life forever. LOVE IT.
