I remember a time when the prince was in Kindergarten or First Grade that he asked a question that I just always took as fact. I never questioned it. I just knew that it WAS. I never asked "why?" or "how?"


It was right around Easter. He asked, "How could God kill his own son?" I didn't know how to answer. I asked a group of people at church. They didn't know. I guess that none of us had faced that question from such a young child. 


I was reminded of it just now as I reviewed a Czech film, entitled MOST. This short (33-minute) DVD reminded me of the self-sacrifice of God's own son as a way to save others. From the movie's website:


MOST, the Czech word for "The Bridge," is a fitting title for this 21st century parable about a loving father, his young son, and the fateful day when they attempt to head off an impending rail disaster. Hundreds of passengers aboard an oncoming steam train are completely unaware of the danger that looms as they head toward an open drawbridge. As a desperate young woman witnesses an act of mercy beyond imagination, her life is changed forever -- as are the lives of all who see this film. Both heart wrenching and glorious, MOST vividly portrays the greatest offering of love, sacrifice, hope, and forgiveness known to man.

While I thought this was a great film to remind us of God's love, I don't recommend it for younger children as it does contain mature subject matter. Also, most of the film is in the Czech language and is subtitled in English. A younger child may have trouble keeping up with the reading.


You can see a trailer here.
