Kenny and Mike discuss the faith elements and other aspects of the films Promising Young Woman and Nomadland. Carey Mulligan stars in the Emerald directed Promising Young Woman and Frances McDormand stars in the Chloe Zhao directed Nomadland.

While the films are very different in look and feel, they share similar faith elements presented.

Faith Elements Spotted

Processing Grief and Loss in ways that lead to growth and new life vs. ways that lead to anger and resentment.

The Peace of Christ and God that passes understanding vs. the false, empty worldly ways of peace. John 14 and Philippians 4

The place of community as an agency of God's peace and the place and purpose of the nomad experience in obtaining healing and wholeness of mind and spirit. Numbers and Joshua 

Passing the Peace of Christ in worship as a way to prepare to receive the sacrament of Communion and a new peace filled life in Christ.
