7 Quick Takes Friday (set #157)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: In this first week of Advent, we continue to remember Christ the King while we await His arrival (videos from Chris Stefanick and Igniter Media). Thanksgiving, now just a memory, memorializes a fictional history…   a video correcting the record. Another great trailer from the upcoming Convinced movie, this time on the “Mary problem.” A short video on the priesthood. Blackstone Films has a short on an Indianapolis Catholic school. What is the “right” minimum wage?

Last week was Thanksgiving and most folks still believe the historically false, politically corrected version of its genesis. It’s a shame that we can’t even be honest about historical fact. Future versions will probably have the Pilgrims coming to the new world in search of homosexual and reproductive freedom.

A few weeks ago I featured aspect the upcoming Convinced movie as my lead 7QTF item. This movie will be released in 2015, but another great trailer is available, addressing the “Mary problem”:

“Storming heaven” with prayers is good – be it joined by your friends here and/or those already in heaven. God will hear those prayers and answer them, but as always that answer may be “later” or “I have a better plan.” On the other hand, as presented in this trailer, He may simply say “yes…” particularly when asked by His mother!

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!
