In My Sleep

Friend of the Inn, Allen Wolf, is an L.A.-based filmmaker who’s newest movie, In My Sleep, is set for release in Los Angeles on April 23rd.  Allen is part of a growing cadre of filmmakers who are creating beautiful movies with Christian themes of truth and redemption, without falling into the “Christian movie” black hole of mediocrity and preachiness.

Allen recently contacted us with the news that In My Sleep has been generating great reviews and awards at various film-festivals around the world:

We first screened In My Sleep at the marketplace of the Cannes Film Festival last May, where The Hollywood Reporter gave us a rave review. Since then the movie won the Audience Award at the Ft. Lauderdale Film Festival, won the Golden Kahuna Award from the Honolulu Film Festival, picked up distribution and has now been sold to over 60 countries around the world, including Latin America, Russia, China, Australia, Germany, and the Middle East!

In My Sleep has been scheduled for limited release in Los Angeles and New York City this spring. The opening weekends are:
Los Angeles on April 23rd
New York City and Los Angeles on April 30th
New York City on May 7th

We want to help promote Allen’s film because the more people who attend its opening weekends, the broader it will be distributed in mainstream theaters.  Make plans to attend one of the opening weekends and bring some friends along!  For tickets, showtimes, behind the scenes videos, and the very latest updates visit www.inmysleep.com.

Helping a Friend in Need

UPDATE: For those wishing to donate online, try going to the Internet Monk website and click the “donate/paypal” button on the right hand side of the page.

UPDATE 2: The correct address to physically send your support is P.O. Box 313, Oneida, KY 40972.

At the recent Westminster Seminary California faculty conference, Mike Horton said “God doesn’t need your good works, your neighbor does.” In the spirit of this truth, we’re asking you to help a neighbor some of you have never met.  Michael Spencer (aka “the Internet Monk“) is a pastor and writer living in Kentucky. He has written two articles for Modern Reformation and has participated in a roundtable discussion on Scripture that will be included in our March/April 2010 issue.

Many of you have benefited from Michael’s honest writing and clear grasp of the gospel. And we’re appealing to you for help on his behalf.  Late in 2009 Michael got sick.  He had symptoms that didn’t go away. The doctors finally diagnosed cancer and on Christmas Eve a mass was removed from the back of his brain.  He’s now trying to recover while facing radiation and chemo treatments.  Like many of you, Michael doesn’t have a “cadillac” insurance program. He works for a small Christian boarding school. The resources to care for very ill employees are limited at best.  In a few weeks he will be out of a job and employer-paid insurance.  The near future looks very tight. Here is an update in Michael’s own words.

This isn’t an appeal for money for White Horse Inn or Modern Reformation. This is an appeal for help for our friend, Michael Spencer. If you can give anything at all, please send it to: Michael and Denise Spencer, P.O. Box 313, Oneida, KY 40972.

Tim Keller once said that Jesus’ command to love our neighbor as ourselves meant that we meet their needs with the same speed, resources, and passion that we meet our own. Join with us in loving Michael Spencer in his time of need.

Watch out, Texas. Dad Rod is comin’

If you can’t get enough of Rod Rosenbladt on the WHI, you’ll have a rare chance to see him in person when he and Craig Parton (a regular contributor to Modern Reformation) speak at the “Defending the Faith Apologetics Symposium,” October 30-31 in Tomball, Texas.
