Open the Window, Let the Dove Fly In: Resources for Da Vinci Code Discussion

  View Printable Version 

Why should we join in the pre- and post-movie dialogue about "The Da Vinci Code"? As people and as Christians, we are called to leave the window to our mind open so that we can receive wisdom and grace, even if it involves acknowledging the dark and painful or even the intellectual, or thinking areas of our lives and our world. The release of the film is not just another movie venture, but rather a priceless opportunity for meaningful, even profound, dialogue about Christianity, religion, money, power, sexuality, philosophy, and theology. It is also an opportunity to envision,and give voice to, progressive Christian ideas about Christ and the Church.
