Divine Canine. Animal Planet Channel, Mondays and repeats throughout the week. Check local listings for your time and channel. If you love animals, you will love this show featuring the Orthodox Monks of New Skete (www.newsketemonks.com) and their animal training ministry. Each week, visit Brother Christopher at the monastery as he deals with a canine with character-usually a character the dog's owner would like tempered with a bit of training! Brother Christopher is the chief dog trainer. In his gentle, loving and humble way, he lets dogs be dogs and in four weeks is able to work veritable miracles with even the more feisty pooches. The Brothers also breed and raise prize-winning, gentle German shepherd dogs. The show is a wonderful witness of Orthodoxy in America and a subtle way to introduce viewers to the Faith. The Brothers are shown at prayer, working on the grounds, walking their dogs and talking about God. We can see inside the monastery buildings and view the ikons. Who knows how many hearts will be touched and drawn by this program? Our Lord works in mysterious ways! For more about this program, you can also visit the animal planet website at http://animal.discovery.com/convergence/divine-canine/divine-canine.html. Better yet, watch it soon!

At the End of the Spear. 2005, Every Tribe Entertainment. Now on DVD.When I was in college, I read the book Through Gates of Splendor by Elisabeth Elliot. It is the story of Protestant missionaries who were killed while trying to bring the Gospel to the Auca (Waodani) Indians in South America. This movie tells that story from the point of view of the son (Steve Saint) of one of the missionaries who was killed. Steve returns to the jungles many years after the incident to find out the real story behind his father's death. What he finds is a redeemed people and the mercy of God. The movie offers a perspective very different from the one in Elliot's book, in my opinion, and an interesting look into Protestant missions of the 1950s. Missions have changed a bit since then. Parents, there are several violent scenes and disturbing images, so children should not watch it alone. I recommend it simply because it shows that our Lord can work good out of even the most tragic of circumstances. Nothing is outside His will. Very encouraging!
