Dinner and a Movie - Which Movies?
I am so tempted. :)
So we're walking up to the idea I had of doing a neighborhood movie night. It's still evolving thanks to the ideas you guys have given and some we've received from the folks at New Hope. Mark Edwards (G'Day mate) suggested we do it outside to cut the church "cheese" factor out for the unchurched. Working on that possibility from a logistical POV.
But more to the point, what movies?
I've been looking at some websites for ideas.
Christianity Today has lists for different groups of people.

Again, keeping with the "Clarity" principle of "Simple Church", we here need to decide how far on the scale are we going to place this effort. If it's early on the Outreach scale, then we are building relationships and sowing spiritual thoughts. If later, we are adding discussion over dessert about those spiritual thoughts, and probably using more "edgy" movies.
Mark's point about moving it outside of church would move it farther along even if nothing else changed I would think.
