Christmas Movies for Everyone

No, I have not seen all these movies, and I’m sure I would disagree with this or that in each one.  After all, they are Phil Boatwright’s recommendations.  But I thought some of you might be interested in his list. 

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Honor Jesus with your church attendance, giving to missions (you can start with the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for the International Mission Board, and Samaritan’s Purse), your lifestyle, and your witness. 

And Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name.  -Luke 1:46-47  NKJV
