  1. I see there is at least one other person who watches films and extracts lessons and moral content just to name a few. Sometimes the message hits you over the head and other times it’s subtle. Like the person looking at a piece of art or reading a poem, everyone comes away with something different. I read your article in Sojourners concerning Clint Eastwood’s new movie in which you said you think Eastwood can be trusted with Mandela. We’ll see what new angle Eastwood finds to tell this story accurately.

  2. Gareth, Hoping you’re speaking at Greenbelt as I’d like to thank you personally for your book, which I’ve just used for part of my MA dissertation.

    • Hi Colin

      Yes, I’m speaking Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Saturday night at 9.30 may interest you. Hope to see you there.

  3. Hi Garreth: was looking to see when you might be up East and saw that you will be in Hartford June 2011 and ws CRUSHED as I am due to be abck in Rwanda April. Got over being crushed when i saw you’d be in Phili for a ” Peace Gathering” Well chuffed. Wondering if you might be willing to tell me a bit more about what the gathering is likely to entail.

    Many Thanks

    • Hi Jodie – sorry to say that the events to which you’re referring were last year – so no need to be crushed! I’ll put an updated event schedule up soon.

  4. No Greenbelt this year Gareth?

  5. Great! I’ll look forward to it! No Oscars or A Year at the Movies though?

  6. Also, in the spirit of your top ten normally having an eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth, if Magnolia doesn’t make it in your 7, can you make it your 8th? I’ve heard you love it but I’ve never heard you speak about it. Cheers!
