The Least Of These: A Christmas Story (2018) & Christmas Oranges (2012) - 2 inspiring Advent \ Christmas movies

 Here we are in Advent week 1, Tuesday night. Check out this amazing family movie about ordinary people going through hard times and yet shining with the most radiant human qualities you can imagine. Here they are living in a car....

Don't be fooled by one of the opening scenes showing a chat between a 7-year old girl and a man in a red suit presenting himself in a diner as Santa Claus. This is a story about redemption, faith in Jesus, as well as the "Christmas spirit".

There are a number of beautiful, ordinary, very real family prayer moments that are so transparent as to cut one to the heart.... This film was truly inspired by the grace of God.... The prayers in real bedrooms with real beds are no less poignant, honest, and true than when they were prayed in the abandoned car....


How amazing is it for a family that has not "had Christmas" for some years to suddenly experience the full joy of Christmas through the kindness of strangers who have become friends.... 


Some times it takes one who used to live in an abandoned car to see those who are now living on the street, who are otherwise invisible to everyone else in our society.... 


Here is another story from long ago that is similar but very different, probably inspired by a true story, this time about orphans and those who care or don't much care about them... and how even in these humble settings the deepest and most awesome human qualities spring up in the most unlikely of places, of hearts....
