Good News Update 135 - 25 August 2015
Are you ready for War?

Great news! The new movie WAR ROOM, from the award-winning creators of Fireproof and Courageous, starts this Thursday the 27th of August in 30 mainstream cinemas all over Australia. WAR ROOM is a compelling story of love, laughs, and loss that explores the power prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives.
Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream
 house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan's world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness.
Their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a "war room" and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony's hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara's wisdom that victories don't come by accident. WAR ROOM features well known actors Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore and the Kendrick brothers.
WAR ROOM is filled with more of the authentic characters loved by millions in previous Kendrick Brothers' films, WAR ROOM is a vivid reminder that prayer is a powerful weapon.

The first week of any movie is the most critical and it really is the first 4 days that make or break any movie that is released. On Monday morning, the cinemas look at their attendances over the last four days and decide whether to run a movie for another week, or take it out of their system. So it is imperative that you make a special sacrifice this week, call your friends and church networks, and if necessary make a long drive to the cinema closest to you to see this amazing movie for yourself. (Please note: If we can make this movie popular in the 30 cinemas where it is showing, other cinemas will open up in regional areas.)
If we are to change our culture we must support those brave Christian film makers who are able to penetrate the movie world with messages of hope, faith and love. It is so easy for Christians to be known for what we are against. WAR ROOM is an opportunity for us to promote something that will reach out beyond the walls of the church to the broader community. We must grab this opportunity with both hands.
To help reward our loyal subscribers, the Canberra Declaration is running a competition for the first 7 days of the movie. Koorong Books and Five Loaves Media, who are bringing WAR ROOM to Australia, have offered 5 packs containing the previous Kendrick brother's movies to the 5 best comments made by those people who have seen the movie and want to recommend it to their friends. Maybe this movie will touch you in a special way, or you might have a story to tell after you have seen WAR ROOM.
Simply go to the Canberra Declaration Facebook page and tell the world your thoughts, along with your email address so that we can contact you. The Canberra Declaration Team will award the 5 top comments the prize allocations from Koorong Books at the end of the first week of the film.
Thank you again for all your prayers and support. Together we are making a difference. WAR ROOM provides us with an amazing opportunity to share the message of faith, hope and love with our friends and family. In doing so, we collectively help move our nation back to the values that have made Australia great.

Yours for promoting the powerful weapon of prayer
Warwick Marsh & Ben Pratt
