This Is Our Time - Movie Review & Giveaway

Ethan, Luke, Alé, Ryder and Catherine are five friends connected by their strong faith. After graduating college, they each set out to make a difference in the world for God. Their ambitions are high, their passions are strong but will they have the courage to fulfill their calling regardless of what comes their way. The sacrifice they are asked to pay may just be too high. Through godly wisdom from an outside source, the group realizes that this is not their time after all, it’s all His!

This Is Our Time begins with five friends graduating college and moving on to find their places in the world wanting to make a difference. Luke and Ale marry right out of school and move to India to be missionaries for Embrace a Village. Catherine lands her dream job in finance and Ryder gets a job in social media. Ethan is struggling to find his purpose in life and feels left out.

Tragedy strikes and everything changes for all of them. The scene with Ethan and his father was heartbreaking. The friends wrestle with why God allowed something like this to happen and their beliefs are shaken to the core.

In the midst of the struggle, Ethan has a conversation with one of his college professors. He reminds Ethan that sometimes things don't make sense. That it isn't our time, but God's time. That we will have many questions along the way, but the most important question is - Who is God asking me to be?

Ethan gathers the friends together to deliver bracelets with messages and tells them that they have been called and that call never means easy. He reminds them that those in the Bible never had it easy, but were asked to be faithful and obedient to what God called them to do.

The friends begin to walk into their God-given purpose in a such a beautiful way. Making changes, having conversations, and ready to make a difference in the world.

"One day you think you have it all figured out and then you realize that there was something better because God is there. One day follows the next. Good times and bad times. Times where you dreams are on hold and times where they come true. Times where you feel alone and times where you feel love overwhelming. Times where you make sacrifices and times when you are overwhelmed by blessings because you're obedient and God is there. He takes all these times and He works in you. He works through you. Give it all to Him. This is His time."

  2. Wendy,

    Thank you so much for reviewing THIS IS OUR TIME and for highlighting Embrace A Village. It was a great gift from God to write and direct. We have also created a four week study guide as a FREE resource for churches, youth and college organizations. Pure Flix will be posting it later this week. I hope it helps everyone take a closer look at what God is calling them to be!
