Coach Carter

Coach Carter (2005)

“Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2, NRSV).  What does it mean? How and in what ways shall we do it? What does it look like, sound like, feel like, taste like, and smell like to bear one another’ burdens right now?

Union Presbyterian Seminary student Kim Lee suggests that Coach Carter might be a good film to use in thinking about those questions!  Click on the image to read her full review, and a suggested discussion guide.

As Union Presbyterian Seminary student Tom LaBonte says, “There are so many issues facing our youth in today’s society that many search for hope,
for support and love because they either do not find that at home, are not part of a Church, and make decisions that lead them astray. Where the Heart Is provides inspiration for each of us to be compassionate and to doing more in placing the needs of others on at least an equal level with our own.”
