‘The Borrowed Christmas’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
John Dale has everything. Money, notoriety, the biggest house in town. But what he really wants, is a good, old fashion Christmas. With no family in town, John turns to the local “Rent-All” store and Anne Weston. Anne’s store is struggling, and in an attempt to save the shop, she takes on this unusual order, from this unusual man.
She goes about trying to fill the order, but ends up filling a need much greater.
This was a treat to watch, reminded me a little of ‘Borrowed Hearts‘ with Roma Downey, one of my favorite secular films.
Here are some highlights for ‘The Borrowed Christmas’:
- Loved the orphan idea – brilliant.
- Loved all the kids in this film. They brought a lot of humor into it.
- The statement about having the Spirit of Christ in all that he does. My feelings exactly!
This is a Christmas film that will make you think about someone OTHER than yourself. It made me appreciate my childhood and how special our mom made Christmas every year. The orphans should be remembered during Christmas and all through the year.
We are reminded in Scripture in James 1:26, 27 – If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
This move reminds us of what Christianity is truly about…
Sherry Morris, who plays Anne Weston, is a delight to watch and we hope to see her in more faith based films. She’s already been in a few, but looking forward to more.
