‘The Ride: A Christmas Eve Parable’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
It’s Christmas Eve in the suburbs of Chicago and a bored, disengaged taxi driver reluctantly accepts one more pickup. The customer asks to be taken to a local bridge and the cabbie soon begins to suspect that his passenger is planning to commit suicide.
In an uncharacteristic attempt to help, the cab-driver makes excuses to prolong the ride while he attempts to connect with and help his distraught fare. As the night progresses, grace invades the hearts of both the complacent and the desolate. Directed by Dallas Jenkins (What If…) and winner of the TAFF 2013 Best Film Award, The ride has brought church audiences to their feet and impacted thousands.
- The cab driver’s attitude – one of the reasons why I pray for people to be given a burden for souls. This film made me wonder how many opportunities to witness for Jesus I missed because of my selfishness.
- The way this film caused me to think about what would I do if I was faced with a similar situation. Something MUST be done, but what is the right thing to do.
This was a very thought provoking film with a powerful ending and I mean really powerful. The ending caused me to realize how much God really loves every one of us, but especially me…
If you struggle with believing God loves you, this is a great one to watch and share.
