Our church hosted a film showing of the movie Amazing Grace last night. It is the powerful story of William Wilberforce and his tireless struggle to end slavery in England. It also describes how John Newtown, a former slave ship captain, penned the beloved hymn, Amazing Grace, and shares his path to redemption in Christ.
I strongly urge all Believers to buy, rent, or borrow this film. This story will challenge you to the core of your being. It will make you ask yourself, “What am I doing for those that can not defend themselves?”
You can see multiple clips and the movie trailer at: http://www.amazinggracemovie.com/
I highly recommend it. You will never sing Amazing Grace the same again. That I promise.
