You need to watch Woodlawn.
Talk about a wonderful movie…I heard a reporter say that Woodlawn is this generation’s Remember the Titans. I agree.
Not being an avid football fan, I hadn’t heard of Tony Nathan’s story.
Southerners aren’t proud of the past, for sure, but this movie isn’t about the shame of the past. It’s about the redemption that came when a brave group decided to not stay stuck.
And the way out?
This is not a cop out answer either. Real encounters with Jesus do not leave you the same.
I need to read up on the Jesus Movement. The movie references it several times. It happened way before my time, so I don’t know much about this period in church history.
The movie did a great job of presenting Christians in a non-cliche way. It simply showed the power of Christians walking in obedience.
I highly encourage you to watch Woodlawn. If you already have, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
