If you’re one of those who makes it a point to observe lent, you know that in just a few weeks, you’ll have to spend some of your instant cash loans again to get on your holiday getaway. These loans are very easy to apply for and they are ideal to spend on a meaningful vacation like a retreat. But if you’re not up for this kind of activity, there are also other ways to spend your Lenten season – family travel, pilgrimage, etc.
Recently outspoken and openly gay singer Elton John was quoted for saying that “…religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people?” He concludes that the way around this dastardly malady is to “ban religion completely.” I don’t know about Elton John but over the last 35 years of my Christian apologetics walk I have heard preachers repeatedly say we must only hate the sin but never hate the sinner. Yes, that means that we must love the homosexual person but we do not ever have to love or accept his behavior.
If you want to get lost in the magic of Disney, this is a movie you will enjoy. I admit that I approached it with skepticism, but following a captivating AC review I decided it was worth a shot. It was charming, funny, and other worldly. Pure, enjoyable escapism. If you didn’t give Enchanted a chance, consider it for a family movie. Not only will the kids love it, but you will enjoy it, too.

“As I drew near the conclusion, I felt a resistance almost as strong as my previous resistance to Theism. . . . Every step I had taken, from the Absolute to ‘Spirit’ and from ‘Spirit’ to ‘God,’ had been a step toward the more concrete, the more imminent, the more compulsive. At each step one had less chance ‘to call one’s soul one’s own.’ . . . I know very well when, but hardly how, the final step was taken. I was driven to Whipsnade [Zoo] one sunny morning. When we set out I did not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and when we reached the zoo I did. Yet I had not exactly spent the journey in thought. Nor in great emotion. . . . It was more like when a man, after long sleep, still lying motionless in bed, becomes aware that he is now awake” (Lewis pp. 129-130).
