God-conversations in Film – 2

Evan Almighty

There’s so much that isn’t right with our world. How do we make it right?

God’s diagnosis – Build an ARK – Act of Random Kindness.

That’s what Evan Baxter gets to learn in EVAN ALMIGHTY

The congressman learns how to change the world, most importantly his immediate world – Family


God: How do we change the world?
Evan Baxter: One single act of random kindness at a time.
God: [spoken while writing A-R-K on ground with a stick] One Act, of, Random, Kindness.

God: Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?

Ark Reporter: What makes you think God chose you?
Evan Baxter: He chose all of us.

We can change our world. It doesn’t take a huge project to change the world. It only takes an ARK – one act of random kindness – at a time to change the world.
