Are prayers for mercy only for those times when we really mess up? Jonathan Parnell says we need God’s mercy all the time. We will learn – how to pray a daily, memorable prayer derived from Psalm 51 - How to practice daily repentance and soul care - How to pursue God and experience his joy in the Christian life. http://jonathanparnell.com
The Canadian International Faith & Family Film Festival (CIFF) is a division of A.C.T. Canada (Artists in Christian Testimony) which is a charitable not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to showcase, promote, educate, and encourage appreciation of faith, family, and independent films. Every year at the CIFF Film Festival we exhibit and celebrate the most outstanding faith and family content produced in every part of the world. Films are selected and nominated by a panel of judges on the basis of content, quality and originality. Faith Based Films are a defined and recognized genre in the film industry specific to Christian faith-based films. There is a growing demand for these films, and yet most global film festivals will not showcase them, and corporations will not invest in them, especially in Canada. They will support just about anything except...! Family films include children's films, and films suitable for the entire family. In today's culture we don't all agree with what Hollywood produces for family viewing. CIFF supports and champions new films that are suitable for entertaining and uplifting family audiences around the world. Because these genres and objectives are no supported by global film festivals, or by corporate sponsors wanting to be politically correct, festivals such as CIFF can only accomplish their mission through the generous support of organizations and individuals with a passion for making sure we all have access to these films. The Canadian International Faith & Family Film Festival is one of the fastest growing segments of the international film festival markets, and the only one of its kind in Canada. Film lovers, industry professionals and media outlets will celebrate the best in new faith and family cinema from established and emerging filmmakers and talent. In our 4th year as a Film Festival and with a presence in over 22 countries, we are well on our way to being an international leader in the faith-based film & music culture. This year they have submissions from over 25 countries.http://cifflix.com
