Rev Stephen Lohoefer
A Moment to Remember
September 20, 2021
Hollywood's first great movie producer, Irving Thalberg, was famously quoted as telling his writers at MGM, "Just give me five great moments, and I can sell that movie."
For movies and screenplays, moments are specific points in time of particular importance to the overall story. Moments are how most of us remember movies.
Think of the conversation on the tarmac between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman at the end of Casablanca.
Or Harrison Ford as he attempts to steal the golden idol in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Or even Mel Gibson's rallying battle cry, "They'll never take our freedom!" in Braveheart.
Rev. Stephen Lohoefer looks at one of these type of moments in Acts - full of drama, excitement, and hugely important to the entire story of scripture.
