September 30th a movie is being released nationwide called COURAGEOUS.
I'd like to launch a bit of a SportsLeader contest - which school can bring the most people to see it and then email a photo to prove it.
So look at your calendar and plan ... invite all your players, parents, coaches, managers ... Invite - it is an optional event, not mandatory.
This can be a virtue event that can bring some great discussion and impact to your community.
Let me know if you plan on doing it - let's encourage one another. I went with Indianapolis Roncalli HS to see the movie Facing the Giants a few years ago and we filled a theater - very inspiring.
Synopsis of the movie
Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they're quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God ... and to their children?
Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.
Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That's courageous.
