This Is Our Time, A PureFlix DVD review & GIVEAWAY

DVD Release Date: April 16, 2013


The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and AlĂ© (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”

My thoughts:

A recent resurgence of Christian themed movies have led to some powerful messages for young and old alike, this one an appropriate reminder God has a purpose for each one of us, a timely purpose!

'This Is Our Time'  will remind many of us of those free and easy college years when the whole world was ahead of us, we were going to make our mark and change everything for the better! 

As we meet our protagonists, it is evident each of them have a path ahead of them, some of those well defined, and others struggling to find a purpose in life. Ethan just happens to be one whom God chose as the 'glue' to keep the others together when hard times hits the group!

(Cast and director)

Drawn partially against the 'Embracing a Village' background in India and Leprosy, I felt the movie to give a powerful reminder of God's message: God's timing is His own, His purpose known to Him only.

I also found the excellent cast to portray the passions of the younger and the wisdom of the older generations believable. Actor and speaker Bruce Marchiano as the trusted Professor and Award Nominee Eric Roberts as the father of two of the graduates lend serious talents to this group!
Kudos to producers such as David A.R. White and writer Lisa Arnold for yet another well done story!

5 Stars!

Don't miss the special features showcasing Embracing a Village with its warmhearted message: 

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...
(Matthew 25:35)
