As much as Hollywood and the left mock religion and Christianity in particular, it’s refreshing to see movie stars who are open about their faith.
Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt is one of them.
Pratt was a guest this year at Disneyland during their Christmas Candlelight Ceremony. The actor read the Christmas story from the book of Luke in between songs and other breaks. The entire event ran about an hour.
“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends”
But perhaps the best part of this event was when Pratt explained what the story of Christ’s birth meant to him as a father.
Heavenly peace: This is a blessing for which we deeply yearn. It moves us to welcome this season with renewed sense of kindness and compassion to others. We gather at celebrations. We create memories with families and friends. We go home. The coming of the holidays brings the promise of faith, of hope and of love. And as the Bible says, “The greatest of these is love. Love bares all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends” …
It’s been a very special and inspiring night. For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child …
The way we love our children, the more we love our children, the more we will understand the capacity for our Father in Heaven to love us. Each and every one of us a precious creation, and He just marvels in the ways that we can try to please Him. That should give us a great deal of comfort. I know it does for me. (51:04)
It was truly remarkable to all who attended, a beautiful event that could only be made more perfect with a truly inspiring message.
When considering an industry like entertainment that is so often antagonistic toward Christians, it’s comforting to know that good guys like Chris Pratt are out there, too.
