The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”
Where Wonder was a meditation on Kindness and Three Billboards was a meditation on Anger and Grief, Get Out hits us with the horrors of Racism. Many in our country and even in our churches want to simply say that we are living in a post-Racial America, and yet there are films, books, and conversations that we have that we cannot turn away from and simply ignore. As the church, we are bridge builders to the kingdom of Christ, and the issue of race is a torrent that needs gospel-centered builders. Our Reel to Real series is a theological exploration of the films that are telling a story that highlight in this cultural moment, an aspect of God's overall redemptive story. Get Out is classified in the horror genre, and it is telling the story of the horror of racism that exists in a suburban neighborhood. In areas where that are presumed "safe" evil and sin creep in. Join us as we look to Jesus who not only tells the story of the Good Samaritan, but also models for us with the Woman at the Well, what true reconciliation looks like.
