Among many other issues that are in the process of purification in our culture, the increasing virtue in media has begun as clean media succeeds at the movies.  Please continue to pray that corrupt and degrading media, movies, and TV will be replaced with news coverage with integrity, entertainment that is edifying, and media that will be uplifting.

Consumer and populist support has been cleansing and improving movies and some television programming in recent years and has had the last word in our election. Let’s all continue to keep the momentum going. Individually and collectively we are making a positive difference. Every positive consumer, voter, and participant counts. We the People are participating in our society and with our Lord to remove and replace degrading and destructive influences in our country and world.

We all need to actively support good media, movies, and television. Fortunately, the trend for redemptive movies continues.  Many good redemptive movies for various ages are in movie theaters for the second week of November.

According to Box Office Mojo on November 9, many good family and redemptive movies for various aged audiences continue to do well at the box office in the following order: Hacksaw Ridge, Deepwater Horizon, Sully, The Secret Life of Pets, Queen of Katwe, I’m Not Ashamed, Finding Dory, Pete’s Dragon, and Greater.
