This past Wednesday Calana and I were able to steal away for a lunch date. We wanted to see the new film, Amazing Grace (Click to see a trailer). It is a great film and one I urge every Wheatlander to check out. The film follows the life and career of William Wilberforce as he works for the abolition of the slave trade in England. Wilberforce was a commited Christian and saw his work for the abolitionist cause as an outgrowth of his Christian faith.
What made this viewing so special is that Calana and I were able to watch the movie with Ellen and Becky Myers. We happened to enter the theatre just before they did and it was a great gift to enjoy such a special film with them. All those who know Ellen and Becky are the richer for it.
