About four years ago, two homeschooled kids in North Carolina decided to make a movie. They wrote a script, prepared a plan, and sent out a casting call. Then, they gathered together all their Lego people, bricks, and accessories. You see, this was a brickfilm - a movie where the actors and sets are Lego toys animated frame-by-frame. The masterminds, Anthony and Jessica Rondina, had produced two…

What single demographic factor makes a young person ten times more likely to require drug rehab, five times more likely to commit suicide, and twenty times more likely to end up in jail?

Ten years ago last April, a church in Georgia released a movie. The church was Sherwood Baptist of Albany, and the movie producers were the Kendrick brothers and their friends. This movie, however, was not named Courageous, Fireproof, or even Facing The Giants. It was called Flywheel. I frequently meet people who have watched one or two of the others, but have never even…
