Enrich your Lenten journey by being a part of Rev. Eric’s Lenten Sermon series that is based on movies dealing with journeys of life that have a Christian message. All the movies are rated PG-13, have been commercial successes, and can be viewed on Amazon and be loaned on Sunday morning from a table in the vestry. Below is the movie being featured each Sunday. Clips from the movies will be shared during the message.

Sunday, March 31-Planes, Trains and Automobiles, 1987. The film stars Steve Martin as Neal Page, a high-strung marketing executive, and John Candy as Del Griffith, an eternally optimistic, outgoing, overly talkative, and clumsy shower curtain ring salesman.
