One of our customers, Sherwood Baptist Church of Albany, GA, has just released a movie, called Courageous, that opened in 1,161 theaters this past weekend. Despite its limited showings, Courageous still managed to come in 4th at the box office.
Sherwood Pictures was started at Sherwood Baptist and has also been responsible for the movie Fireproof. Using members of their own congregation, Sherwood produced this movie to shed light on the importance of a father’s role in his children’s lives.
CNN wrote a blog post on the movie that goes into more detail of where the idea came from and why Sherwood Baptist felt compelled to create this film.
I really like part of the description of the movie (from courageousthemovie.com) that reads, “Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.”
Go out and see this awesome movie if it’s in your area! Have a great weekend!
