of gods and men

please do see this movie. i almost got to see it at the Portland International Film Festival, but i watched Louder Than a Bomb instead. this movie is about the light of the world shining in great darkness.  it’s about love and obedience.  it’s what Into Great Silence should have been.  so important.  so lovely. The Monks from Tibhirine: Faith, Love and Terror in Algeria, the book that the film is based on, is coming soon from the library.  i’ll let you know how it reads.
