End of the Spear - Three Questions

Saturday, January 21st, 2006
After a long week, working with a client, I treated myself to the late screening of End of The Spear.  I'm glad that I did. It helped put things back into perspective for me. The "important" technology work that I did all week no longer seems so important. In fact, at the level of the people portrayed in the film, my technical work is largely irrelevant, other than it allows me serve others.

I deliberately won't blog about the details of this true story - I don't want to spoil anything or take away from the message.

I simply want you to watch the film and then ask yourself these three questions:
1. What was so important that would cause these men to do what they did?

2. Knowing all that he knew, what was so important that the son did what he did?

3. What would you do? How would you respond? Why?

The real message of this story lives in the answers to these three questions.

I hope you will go see the film and consider these questions.


I will tell you one thing about the move itself. Stay to the very end. There's are some worthwhile clips half way through the credits.
