just got back from les mis with Quint.
we were enchanted.
it was a spiritual journey with truth spewing all over the place. it starts when jean valjean carries a wooden flag pole on his own back, like Jesus with the cross.
the characters go back and forth requiring mercy and forgiveness from each other. life-saving grace is extended more than once. selfless love is an overarching theme that touches every scene.
this week i tweeted that christmas songs make non-believing people to sing truth. well – every actor/singer in this movie, was part of a miracle. they were participating in a full frontal assault by God. Armed with truth about God, the bible, Jesus, heaven… the actors delivered God’s message over and over again… perhaps in spite of themselves.
i left with a prayer in my heart for those who will hear the message. God’s word will not return void, and through this movie and these songs, people are going to hear it. i pray that the truths the people on set sang and heard will be trapped in their hearts and do the work of our living God…
“to love someone else, is to see the face of God”
