“And then there’s All Eyez on Me. I may not know much about rap music but I do know a bad movie when I see it, and this film is one of the worst movies that I have ever seen. It is also incredibly entertaining and I predict that it could eventually reach cult status.”

“As Kroc makes some good decisions (and learns from a few bad ones), we learn a great deal about fast food, real estate, and shady business deals. As we see how optimism combined with opportunity and hard work combine to make Ray Kroc a wealthy man, we also see the ways in which growing riches and the right kind of legal representation can justify an ethically compromised worldview. “You can’t serve God and riches”, Jesus once said.

“The New Testament is not hesitant to encourage compassion and care for widows and orphans, and Jesus promises: “I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you.” (John 14:18)

In a variety of small and significant ways the kids in My Life as a Zucchini are cared for, and discover ways to care for one another. These little clay characters bring with them a wonderful message. May we be molded into their likeness.”
