Echo Movie’s Call for Godly Fathering
The hit film COURAGEOUS opened at No. 4 in theaters last fall; its Blu-ray™ and DVD debuted in January at No. 1, selling more than a million copies so far; and its call to godly fathering has touched millions of people. Now, in honor of Father’s Day, churches across the country are planning activities to extend the film’s vital message.
Events planned for the weeks leading up to and on Father’s Day include:
COURAGEOUS, produced by Sherwood Pictures, in partnership with Provident Films and AFFIRM Films, tells the story of four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, they are confident and focused, standing up to the worst the streets have to offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. When tragedy strikes home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, fears, faith and fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God . . . and to their children? Protecting the streets is second nature. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.
