But now, what about Dr Phil? you ask. I'm getting to that. (Bear with me...I'm still very excited from this evening and I am trying to tell you everything and my thoughts are jumping all over the place!!!) Michael (that's our pastor BTW) also said that they showed the movie to a firehouse in New York City last night and 17 of the firemen gave their lives to Christ when it was over!! Can you BELIEVE that??!? God is AWESOME!!
Anyway, ALL of that to say that TODAY, Thursday, at 5pm on whatever channel Dr Phil comes on in your area, our pastor Michael Catt, Alex Kendrick (who wrote the movie and also goes to our church), and Kirk Cameron (who plays in the movie) will be on Dr Phil talking about the movie. Now...the show is NOT JUST about the movie. This is what Michael was excited about. The show is entitled Fireproof Your Marriage. Howda like that?! Michael said he wouldn't give it all away, wouldn't tell us what all happened, that we would have to watch and see for ourselves, but he did say that he almost felt like he was in a church service. What?? On DR PHIL? On TV? Yes. Apparently, there are some guests on the show that are having marital problems, and some are even firefighters, and Michael said that it was just a GREAT show. So, I hope that everyone will take the opportunity to tune in and watch it...even though I know it's in the middle of Happy Hour!!
And I hope that you all will make it a point to go and see Fireproof when it comes out on Friday. Better yet, take some friends with you Marriages are under attack today. I pray that God will use this movie as a catalyst to help marriages and families all over to get back on the right track.
