I watch the Hallmark Channel and its sister channel Movies and Mysteries regularly. I catch all kinds of flak from the guys at church. They dismiss those movies as chick flicks.
But I don’t care. In these movies no one ever gets shot or stabbed or strangled. Nobody commits adultery. No women or children are ever abused. No characters ever fly into a fit of anger or rage. Conflicts between the characters are few and far between. Any conflicts that arise always get resolved at the end of the movie.
What I like most about Hallmark movies is that God and Christ are woven throughout the movies. Pastors, priests and rabbis appear in some movies as characters who impact the story lines. They sometimes play influential roles in the movies. Churches and synagogues often serve as scene settings for the dramas. Scenes often include families praying together and fellowshiping around the dinner table talking about God and spiritual matters. Families are all a mainstay in every Hallmark movie. The underlying theme of every Hallmark movie is helping and serving others.
Marie and I don’t care much for TV at all. I watch college football. We have a few select shows during the week that we’ll watch. Survivor and Dancing with the Stars among them. Marie likes 20/20 and some cop shows.Some nights we go without watching TV at all.
But we’re always up or a Hallmark movie.
