Hope you successfully navigated the school and public holidays over the last three weeks. It’s been a while since our last Crave night so we’re looking forward to betting back into things this Friday. Our launch event this Friday is actually vital to what happens the rest of term, here’s why: We’re going to watch a movie called Life of Pi. You may remember it winning a bunch of academy awards 18 months ago. It was widely well received by critics and I rate it as perhaps the most visually spectacular movie I’ve ever seen (and I have seen a lot of movies – Cinema Studies was my major at uni). It’s important to note it’s not a Christian movie. It’s made for everyone and was enjoyed by religious and non-religious people alike. What the film does do is raise a bunch of questions about God, gods, belief, faith and truth (as well as being a thrilling survival adventure). So at the end of the movie, we are going to get the youth to write down the questions that spring to their mind as they watch the movie. We’ll collect them all and then our topics for the term will be based around those questions. What this effectively means is that the youth get to pick our topics for the entire term 🙂
We’ll do it in Gold Class style (but not at Doncaster) so the youth will be pampered and fed by our leaders throughout the movie which will take up most of the night. It’s a super easy invite for friends and I can almost guarantee they’ll enjoy the movie – I’m yet to meet someone who didn’t at least give it 3/5, most give it a 4/5 or 5/5. Ratings wise it is a PG rated movie. Click here for more details the classification.
