In the Month of November 2014, Focus on the Family will be partnering with Churches around the country to screen the movie: Irreplaceable. This feature-length documentary film explores answers to the important questions “What is family?” and “Does family still matter in today’s society?”
Tim Sisarich, travels the world on a quest to explore what family really means and why it’s important to humanity. While on the journey, he discovers why all humans have a yearning to be in a family and to be a part of something bigger than themselves. He also explores the forces contributing to the breakdown of family, including the decline of marital commitment, the prevalence of “anything goes” sexuality, and the rise of fatherlessness.
Why is it important?
Focus on the Family says: “Unfortunately, the word ‘family’ has all but lost its meaning in our modern cultural landscape. And the fallout has been significant. Divorce. Crime. Poverty. Addictions. Abuse. Our attempts to redefine and reimagine the family only make these problems worse, not better. When the family is weakened, society suffers.
“But strong families make the world a better place. And that’s what Irreplaceable is all about. The documentary is timely and provocative, challenging audiences to take a closer look at their own families and to consider what can be done to make the family stronger.
How Can churches get Involved?
“Focus on the Family believes the message of Irreplaceable is so important that we are partnering with churches to present a special screening of the film nationwide during the month of November, at no cost. This is an event that we believe will resonate with your members, and we hope you’ll get involved. All you need to do is sign up as a participating church and we’ll send you the movie and all you’ll need to promote the screening in your church and community.”
