Comments by Dan:

Bruce Almighty is a comedy about a TV reporter (Jim Carrey) who is convinced that the world is stacked against him.  After questioning the job that God is doing, God (Morgan Freeman) endows Bruce with divine powers and challenges Bruce to take on the big job to see if he can do it better.  Not surprisingly Bruce wildly underestimates how complex it is to try to answer everyone’s prayers and we are left with a relatively UU notion that people need to answer their own and each other’s prayers.  This month we will watch a portion of the movie in our Middle School RE class and I will be showing the movie it its entirety for both the Middle School students and the rest of our UUCK community.
