This week on the Reel Spirituality Podcast, Elijah Davidson sat down with Fuller’s Assistant Professor of New Testament Studies, Dr. Tommy Givens, to discuss three short films on the subject of immigration issues. All three films are being shown this weekend at the Windrider Bay Area Film Festival. If you are in the area, we hope you can join us at the festival. If you cannot, two of the films—The Dream is Now and Old Immigrants Dance—are embedded below, and the other one, The Fence, is available to stream via HBOGo.
During the discussion, Tommy unpacks the most common story told in America today, a story that is the foundation for so much of American social policy, and a story that he believes ultimately contradicts the story told in the gospels about what it means to live a “good life.”
