11/14/2016 1:00 PM   Monday Afternoon Movie
Monday Movie Christmas Oranges The Gathering Place Coffee Shop Paris Presbyterian Church 127 Steubenville Pike Paris (Burgettstown), PA Monday, November 14 1:00 to 3:00 pm (End time may vary due to length of movie) Join us on November 14 Christmas Oranges, 21 The Christmas Candle, 28 The Bishop's WIfe; December 5 Its A Wonderful Life, 12 White Christmas & 19 The Nativity Story for Movie Mondays in The Gathering Place Coffee Shop. Come and relax and enjoy an afternoon movie on us! For details call PPC at 724-729-3450 or check out our website www.pariseco.net or like us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ParisPresbyterianChurch/events/ Synopsis In a town not so far away and a time not so long ago, baby Rose was left at Greenwoods Orphanage, where Mrs. Hartley (Nancy Stafford) and the children under her care become the young child’s family. But when tragedy strikes Rose (Bailee Johnson) loses the only home she has ever known and is abruptly shipped to Irongates — a place that seems as cold and cruel as her previous home was kind. The strict headmaster, Mr. Crampton (Edward Herrmann), immediately seems to dislike Rose — and makes sure all children are punished for any infractions of his rules. When she learns that every Christmas Mr. Crampton’s generous brother gives an orange to each child, Rose waits in eager anticipation. She’s sure it must be the most delicious treat in the world. However, on Christmas morning, Rose is devastated when she learns Mr. Crampton is punishing her again. But Christmas is a time of miracles. Share a slice of Christmas sweetened with friendship in this poignant Christmas story based on a classic holiday tale. Dove Review This heartwarming Christmas story can be enjoyed any time of the year! The Christmas spirit is alive in this one. An orphan named Rose faces several challenges but they serve to fashion her into a character that stands up to life’s challenges and yet she retains a sensitive spirit. We hear the older version of Rose narrate her life’s journey. Mr. Crampton is elderly and bitter but Rose helps turn him around and he becomes a new man, kind of like Scrooge turning into a good guy at the end of “A Christmas Carol”. We are pleased to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages to this wonderful DVD. The very young might not find it as interesting as older children and adults will. Pull this one out for the holidays or anytime you simply want to watch a great movie that tells a compelling story. Content Description Sex: None Language: Boy teases a girl and says, "Piggy Face" but he likes her; the words "ugly" and "stupid" are used. Violence: Boy pulls girl's hair; kids kick each other under table; a girl slaps a mean girl in the face after telling her there was a spider on her face. Drugs: None Nudity: None Other: Girl refuses to share food with others; girl rips girl's doll's head off; boys start a food fight; boy is sent to solitary confinement in attic for breaking rules as is a girl; child dies due to flu and there is grief; another character dies.

Come and relax and enjoy an afternoon movie on us! For details call PPC at 724-729-3450 or check out our website www.pariseco.net or like us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ParisPresbyterianChurch/events/ Hans Matheson and Samantha Banks in The Christmas Candle EchoLight Studios Hans Matheson and Samantha Banks in The Christmas Candle Based on a novel by Max Lucado, The Christmas Candle revolves around a conflict between a progressive, skeptical minister, David Richmond (Matheson), and the community of Gladbury that hires him. Each holiday the candle maker and his wife are visited by an angel who touches just one candle. According to tradition, the community member who lights that candle and prays receives a Christmas miracle. Richmond doesn't like the tradition; he wants the community to make its own miracles by loving one another and meeting one another's needs. "Why one," he asks in a sermon, and "not fifteen?" He insists, "I'm a believer . . . in common sense." He chides the people, saying that hope should not come from earthly things or superstitions. If the community can band together to make each other's wishes come true, that would be "miracle enough." One of the things that elevates Candle over many Christian films is that it doesn't really vilify or demonize opposing views. In both plot and theology, it is on the side of tradition, but Richmond's antagonism is not treated as a character defect. In a wonderful little scene after his sermon announcing the end of the tradition, we see an exchange between him and the father of a mute boy who had been praying to receive the candle. The man disagrees with the minister, but pays deference to his office and respects his work. For his part, Richmond doesn't simply tell the villagers to give up the tradition; he models the communal love and service he expects from them. It's easy enough to see where this is going: in the conflict between Christian faith and Christian love, the answer is "both/and," not "either/or." Only in a scene where Richmond tries to install electric lights in the church and starts a fire does the film tip over into the heavy-handedness that too often characterizes Christian movies. Even then, it is refreshing to see Christian characters respond with less vindictiveness or smugness than one might expect. http://www.christianitytoday.com/…/no…/christmas-candle.html

The film was adapted by Leonardo Bercovici and Robert E. Sherwood from the 1928 novel of the same name by Robert Nathan, and was directed by Henry Koster. It was remade in 1996 as The Preacher's Wife starring Denzel Washington, Whitney Houston, and Courtney B. Vance. Contents [hide] 1 Plot 2 Cast 3 Production 4 Awards and honors 5 Adaptations to other media 6 References 7 External links Plot[edit] Bishop Henry Brougham (David Niven), troubled with funding the building of a new cathedral, prays for divine guidance. His plea is seemingly answered by a suave angel named Dudley (Cary Grant), who reveals his identity only to the clergyman. However, Dudley's mission is not to help construct a cathedral, but to spiritually guide Henry and the people around him. Henry has become obsessed with raising funds, to the detriment of his family life. His relationships with Julia (Loretta Young) and their young daughter are strained by his focus on the cathedral. Everyone, except for Henry, is charmed by Dudley, even the non-religious Professor Wutheridge (Monty Woolley). Dudley persuades the wealthy parishioners, particularly widowed Agnes Hamilton (Gladys Cooper), to contribute needed funds, but not to build the cathedral. He coaxes Mrs. Hamilton to donate her money to feed and clothe the needy — much to Henry's chagrin. To save time, Dudley also redecorates the Broughams' Christmas tree in a few seconds, saves an old church by restoring interest in the boys' choir, and dictates to a typewriter to magically produce Henry's new sermon — without Henry's knowledge. But when Dudley spends time cheering up Julia, there is an unexpected development: Dudley finds himself strongly attracted to her. Sensing this, Henry becomes jealous and anxious for his unwelcome guest to finish and depart. He reveals Dudley's true identity to Professor Wutheridge, who urges him to stand up and fight for the woman he loves. Dudley indicates a willingness to stay, but Julia, sensing what he means, tells Dudley it is time for him to leave. Dudley tells the bishop it is rare for an angel to envy a mortal. Henry wants to know why his cathedral plans were derailed. Dudley reminds the bishop he prayed for guidance, not a building. With his mission completed and knowing that Julia loves her husband, Dudley leaves, promising never to return. All memory of him is erased, and later that Christmas Eve at midnight, Henry delivers the sermon that he believes he has written. Dudley observes from the street, satisfied that his work is done.
