Sermons mesh with film about skeptic

GREENFIELD — For everyone who has ever pondered the existence of God, a new movie depicts the story of an award-winning investigative journalist and avowed atheist, who applies his reporting and legal skills to disprove his wife’s newfound Christian faith, with unexpected results.

“The Case for Christ” opened in theaters April 7 and is based on Lee Strobel’s New York Times best-selling book of the same name, telling Strobel’s own story of his journey from skepticism to faith.

Starting Sunday, St. James Lutheran Church will offer a four-week sermon series in its 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. services, using Bible verses and video clips from the film to help people grow more established in their faith and understand why they believe what they do.
