Item Description...
Our age is defined by warfare against the Christian family, and one of the casualties experienced by many families is the death of multi-generational victory. Psalm 128 teaches that it is the hope of the righteous man to see the generations that come after him persevere in Christ Only God's grace can produce such a blessed result, but the Bible teaches that parents can make strategic choices which either impede or bless generational faithfulness. The fact is that Christian families suffer today because they fail to capture the hearts of their children. Too often they fail to communicate vision, convictions, and wisdom to their children. In the battle between pagan culture and the Christian family culture, paganism often wins. The sad response is that too many Christian parents simply give up. Others set their goals so low that their best strategy is simply to see their children "survive" a little bit longer, or to lose the battle for the generations as slowly as possible. We believe more is needed. Our message is this: To achieve victory, first you must seek it. In the battle for the family, this means making God-honoring and strategic choices which cultivate an environment of honor, faithfulness to Christ, and generational-minded strategic choices. For our children to be mighty in the land, we must embrace a long-term vision of victory, and this will only be achieved if we take steps now to plan and implement multi-generational goals for our families. Enter The 200 Year Plan: A Practicum on Multi-Generational Faithfulness, a life-changing conference hosted by Vision Forum Ministries on March 28-30, 2008 in San Antonio, TX, at the beautiful Empire Theatre. With approximately five hundred people in attendance, the messages of hope and family revival flowing from the heart of Doug Phillips and Geoff Botkin were delivered with fervor, laughter, tears, and pastoral encouragement. The goal was to help families to understand the necessity of developing and communicating a vision of family faithfulness in Christ, and then practically how to develop creative approaches to implement a 200-year plan through the culture of family life and the legacy of godly experiences, wisdom, and vision which parents leave to their children. While I knew that God desired us to be at this conference, it was not until tonight that I realized the full extent of "why." I have long felt that my family was my most important ministry, but I had no idea that God had a m

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Rare and balanced critique of Walt Disney's work and legacy  Jul 30, 2008
This is a three part CD recording of the life and legacy of Walt Disney and analysis of his contribution to society, particularly his moral views from a Christian perspective. The speakers do an excellent and balanced job in their presentations.

Covering Walt's strengths such as his big vision and ambition to influence the world, his principles of curiosity, confidence, courage, and consistency are all well done. Walt valued traditional family, another solid strength. However, since many have grown up with Disney's creations and the emotional love and attachment with his name is strong, rarely do they hear (or want to hear) some critique to his work.

The speakers do a great job in this respect as well, covering some of the main weaknesses in Disney's work, such as (1) his failure to convey his moral worldview to his successors, (2) his skillful but sad merge of mythic paganism with Christian 19th century moralism, and (3) his cutification of witchcraft and evil. The last one is particularly concerning, such that when we have witchcraft and evil made into very cute, puffy, and wonderful, this desensitizes us to some things that God considers evil and wrong.

An excellent challenge to all who love or have grown up with many of Disney's productions. A call to test everything and hold on to what is good.
