Last Spring I put out a call for favorite “Road Movies”: movies where the action takes place while on the road. I got more than 40 different nominations. Some were more “usable” than others. Someone from my early youth ministry days wanted to see if I would use, “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” (Uh, no). There were so many good selections, we even extended the series!
Here are the movies that were chosen- and the week we will use them:
July 7: The Way (this is the one that inspired the series)
July 14: The Wizard of Oz
July 21: Lord of the Rings (the services will be extended 9 hours in order to watch all three in their entirety- or maybe not)
July 28: O Brother, Where Art Thou? (a version of the THE Road Story of all time)
August 4: The Bucket List
August 11: Driving Miss Daisy
August 18: The Blues Brothers (Pork Pie hats and sunglasses are encouraged)
August 25: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Thanks for all the suggestions! And now, let the series begin!
