In the Arms of Angels -- A moving example of the power of prayer, a miracle, and God's grace.
This short drama will generate thought-provoking discussion. When eight-year-old Belle Richards disobeys her father, she puts herself and her younger brother in grave danger from a rock slide that would have meant sudden death, had not God intervened. Though she never told a soul about their miraculous rescue, years later her father would know exactly what happened. Through this event, Belle drew closer to God and learned the tough lesson of obedience.
Includes two special extras: Remembering Belle and Director's Notes.

No Greater Love -- A despondent American journalist is sent to rural Austria in the fall of 1956 to cover the story of the refugee flight from Communist Hungary, following the demise of an attempted revolution against Soviet occupation. While investigating the story, he witnesses an unparalleled act of love that changes his perspective on the events he is covering as well as his own neglect of his family.
Based on true events, No Greater Love explores the theme of sacrificial love set against the backdrop of history through the Hungarian refugee flight of 1956. The story contrasts two fathers, one Hungarian and one American, and how the first is willing to lay down his life for his family, while the other is struggling with his distant relationship with his wife and children. This story serves as a challenge to us all -- to be willing to love to the greatest extent.
Optional Hungarian subtitles

Touch of the Master's Hand --
From the room, far back, a gray-haired man
Came forward and picked up the bow;
Then, wiping the dust from the old violin,
And tightening the loose strings,
He played a melody pure and sweet
As a caroling angel sings.
The music ceased, and the auctioneer,
With a voice that was quiet and low,
Said; "What am I bid for the old violin?"
And he held it up with the bow.
"The Touch of the Master's Hand" is an inspirational and captivating film that speaks eloquently to the worth and potential of every individual. This film parable, based on the beloved poem by Myra Brooks Welch, illustrates why all life is valuable and that anyone can find renewal and begin again.
Produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker T.C. Christensen.

The Bridge -- Includes three short stories
The Bridge -- A dramatic parable on God's sacrifice of his son. A father is working on the controls of a railroad track to allow an approaching passenger train to cross safely over the bridge. He sees his young son coming toward him on the tracks. It is at this moment the father must decide whom to save — the train passengers or his son. This powerful film opens up in a unique way the meaning of God's sending His Son. An unusually effective discussion starter. 11 minutes
The Pump -- A man journeying through the desert has car trouble and decides to walk until he comes upon a ghost town. There he finds a pump with a note advising him not to drink the water in the bottle but rather to prime the pump, and he'll get plenty of water. What should he do? Gulp down the water in the bottle or trust the directions on the note? We learn of the decision he made when we later see the man face down in the sand, the discarded bottle nearby. This parabolic film has many Christian parallels, making it suitable for personal reflection or group discussion. 9 minutes
The Mouths of Babes -- This program consists of a series of questions to which very young children respond. Topics for the questions range from the nature of God to how to live. The children's responses are natural and sincere, often evoking laughter and delight from the audience. But this film should be seen as more than just entertainment. It should be used to help equip parents and teachers to listen and to teach by dealing with the issues underlying the children's answers. 15 minutes
Waiting for the Wind -- A story of family love, loyalty and boundless faith. Walter is faced with a terminal illness while his son-in-law is struggling with grief over the death of his young wife and his disbelief in God. In an unforgettable scene, Walter's rugged faith is conveyed to his adoring grandson. Starring Robert Mitchum, Rhonda Fleming, and Jameson Parker.
Called: Vocation As an Expression of Faith -- What am I going to do with my life? It is the profound and decisive question every young person must face. Noted author Frederick Buechner described this program as the point at which one's "deep gladness meets the world's great need." In this film, a wide cross-section of teachers and leaders probe what it means not only to live one's beliefs at work, but live them through their work.
