I don't usually talk religion much on my blog, well, not at all really! It's not the point of my blog and I'm hoping that simply by the way I "do things" you'll get a vibe of where I'm coming from religiously speaking.
But today I did want to share with you a unique thing that's happening this weekend that has my Utah Mormon community all abuzz. There's going to be a theatrical movie released country-wide that highlights several Mormons and their lives. I guess the idea is to let the world know that Mormons are fairly normal (well, as normal as any of us are!) people that do good things all around the world.
Here's what the official blurb says:
Meet the Mormons is a feature-length documentary that examines the very diverse lives of six devout members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Filmed on location and across the globe, Meet the Mormons takes viewers on a journey into the day-to-day realities of individuals living in the U.S., Costa Rica, Nepal and beyond. From their individual passions to their daily struggles, each story paints a picture as rich and unique as the next while challenging the stereotypes that surround the Mormon faith. The film will appear in theaters across the United States beginning on October 10th, 2014. All net proceeds from the film will go to charity.
So if you're curious about Mormons, check it out! I'm kinda curious and I am one myself and live in the middle of Mormon country! It will be interesting for me to see how they do this thing. I'll let you know what I think. :) And if any of you end up seeing it, of course I'd love to know what you think too.
Here's a link to the official trailer, but the clip I wanted to embed here is David Archuleta singing the song from this movie while clips from the movie play behind him. I love his voice! Take a listen and see if you don't get a couple of chills. (You can download this song for free too. Cool.)
