The Drop Box: a Must-See MovieRich Stigall
This week, a friend shared his vision for “pro-life.” It does start with being pro-birth. From that foundation, pro-life reaches into every forgotten corner of society. Pro-life loves the poor, the sick, the convict, the elderly, the haughty, the abuser, the difficult, the disadvantaged, and the orphan. Pro-life fuels a radical, self-sacrificing, give-my-life-away, Jesus-like love. No one reading this will argue that, but really, who lives like that?
Meet Pastor Lee Jong-rak from South Korea. He’s featured in the upcoming documentary, The Drop Box. In our culture where mainstream pornography sensationalizing and romanticizing sin and smut presells $60 million on Fandango, Focus on the Family and Kindred Image offer an inspiring alternative that takes us into a different kind of sewer. It’s a low, low place in Seoul where the beautiful smiles and laughter of once-discarded children unlock our hearts to real love. As many of you know, the orphan window is a sacred space where our deepest, purest desires can actually be fulfilled. Hollywood doesn’t get it, but The Drop Box does, capturing the redemptive power of the heart of our Father for His kids.
What would happen if we set aside an evening to put eternal truth into our minds? What would change if the trailer below got 250 million views? How would God’s Kingdom advance if just one of us decided we were going to love the least of these with the all-in abandon that defines Pastor Lee’s view of pro-life?
The Drop Box is being released nationally this March 3rd, 4th, and 5th. It is truly one of the year’s must see movies. (Click here to find a theater near you)
