Christy: Find Faith
“Those who have never rebelled against God have never encountered God at all,” David tells Christy in this sequel to “Christy: Return to Cutter Gap.” Christy questions her faith when members of the remote mountain cove come down with typhoid fever. She struggles to understand how God could let good people die, especially someone to whom she is very close. Can Christy regain her faith and come to realize that, in life or death, God’s greatest gift to everyone is love?
One of the things I like most about this “Christy” story is her expressed anger with God, when a good friend dies of typhoid fever. The message is clear: it’s OK to be mad at God, He can handle it and you’re not going to be separated from His love as a result. The story is typical of the “Christy” TV series many people enjoyed in the past. When David tells people, at a funeral service, that the real waste in life is not death, but if we fail to love, he’s giving a message that will resonate with people of all ages. Feature Films For Families is to be commended again for continuing to provide solid, thoughtful films.
