Mo5 Stars Out Of 5Never Get Tired of Watching it Over and OverJanuary 26, 2018MoQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is one of my all-time favorites...especially at Christmastime...or anytime. I have watched this at least 6 or 7 times already and have plans to continuing viewing it many more times in the future. I've also purchased it to give as a gift. Period pieces have a special place in my heart and this is one of the best. The acting is 5-star; the storyline is captivating; character casting is perfect. The whole production is magical. Be blessed by watching it, at least once!!

Disappointed1 Stars Out Of 5Diluted presentation of the importance of faithful prayerDecember 11, 2017DisappointedQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1(Spoilers) New pastor comes to a church where everyone has a quirky obsession with the tradition of "The Christmas Candle" - a story in which every 25 years an angel blesses a single candle, and whoever receives the candle lights it and prays over it and God will answer their prayer (it is assumed that God will answer favorably). At first this movie drew me in. The young pastor boldly preached that our hope should be in Christ alone and not in a candle. He stood up against immense pressure from the congregation and refused to preach the traditional Christmas candle sermons, and he questioned the silliness of the tradition - why every 25 years? why only one candle? Does God not hear our prayers unless we light a special candle?? Later, there is confusion and everyone prays believing they have received the Christmas candle, and their prayers are heard. They discover that God answers prayers when we pray faithfully and fervently! BUT, in the end when the pastor finds himself in a crises situation in need of a miracle, he has the actual Christmas candle. He lights it, prays over it, and receives a miracle (glowing special effects and all), becoming a believer in the Christmas candle. Although the movie was well made by feel-good-Christmas-movie standards, it seems the overall message of hoping in Christ alone - not in our traditions or even in the desired outcomes of our situation - is diluted by the "wonder" of the angels and miracles. The Christ-exalting preacher is won over, conveying the message that yes, God always hears our prayers, but when you're REALLY in a crisis, you need something "extra" for God to answer in miraculous ways. You need Jesus AND The Christmas Candle.
