The movie Amazing Grace hit the screen on 23/02/07, but it’s not going to screen in any of Singapore’s theaters.
Catch the movie else where if you can. For those who can’t, I got the above movie trailer for you.
At the end of the trailer, you will see “23/02/2007 EVERWHERE”….well, except Singapore. Guess why?
Anyway, want more? Here is Chris Tomlin’s version of the old-favorite Amazing Grace. Lovely!
||If you want to learn more about the movie, here is The Amazing Grace Study Guide, it’s a valuable tool to learn about abolitionist, William Wilberforce before viewing the film. Ideal for guiding 9 – 12 yrs old.|
||There is also a tool for church leaders. The Amazing Grace Faith Guide would help you learn about the impact of William Wiberforce’s fath, courage and compassion. It’s good for engaging adults and late teens, or even for outreach. There is a video clip that go along with the Faith Guide (Download Video).|
Click on the sheet music image to download a sheet music for the Hymm Amazing Grace. There are currently 972 arrangements of the song and more than 1,100 available albums which feature versions of Amazing Grace.
Guess what, Arlo Guthrie performed Amazing Grcae on the opening night of Woodstock.
Many people find it hard to believe that slavery still exists. Whether it’s bonded slavery with men, women and children toiling on plantations, in rice mills, brick kilns and many other industries; or, the deplorable and prevalent trade in humans to serve as sex slaves, slavery is flourishing in many parts of the world. Yes, even in the streets of Singapore e.g. Geylang.
It is still every bit as ugly as it was 200 years ago and it must end.
Did you know that there are more slaves in the world today than during all 400 years of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade?
Now that you know, you cannot go on pretending it does not exist. As a human being, what are you going to do about it? A FREE man celebrate and embrace freedom in everything he/she does. An ensalved mind ignored it.
If you are a FREE man/woman, find out more via The Amazing Change website. Inspired by the film Amazing Grace, The Amazing Change is a campaign to carry on Wilberforce’s vision of Mercy and Justice.
