WASHINGTON — Emmy-winning filmmaker Martin Doblmeier and Journey Films have produced a new two-hour documentary called "Chaplains" that will air on PBS stations in 2015, which seeks to enlighten the general public about the role that American chaplains play in their various arenas of work.
The film shadows chaplains from various faiths and theatres — from a Muslim police chaplain who serves as a middleman between cops and the hostile Muslim community, to a Buddhist chaplain who fulfills the spiritual needs of prisoners in an Oregon state prison — and provides a sense of the benefits that chaplains provide to the communities they serve.
At the film's premiere screening Thursday night at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., Doblmeier, who has produced over 25 films focused on religion, faith and spirituality, explained that the reason for producing the documentary is that most people don't understand the importance that the chaplaincy has to society as a whole. more >>

A new year is around the corner and so are the summer Olympics. This year, the games will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and we'll hear about all of the big-name athletes who compete. But we're unlikely to hear about the big names in the Paralympics. In this video, these athletes are sent into gyms to shock the locals.
Nobody is perfect, but God has given us all a gift and it's up to us to allow it to bring out the best in us. That's exactly what the team who made this video for the 2016 Paralympic Games was counting on when they sent these individuals into gyms across Rio. Luciano Dantas, a powerlifter with dwarfism, Vinicius Rodrigues, an amputee sprinter, and Lucia Teixeira, who is visually impaired, shock those around them with their God-given talents. Although each has a physical challenge, they all do an amazing job.
This video is an excellent tool to help enlighten people about what it means to be a para-athlete. Check out this inspirational paralympics video below: more >>
Much of what we see broadcast about world news and events is negative, and many believe that this generation of children has no hope. Even the parents in this video seem skeptical. But when the children are interviewed, their words can restore every doubters' faith in humanity.
The world can make you think that no one cares about negative events that transpire, or about what's going on with our children, because people are busy or don't have time. But that is not a good example to set for our children. We should always show that we care about them and about what's going on around us, and teach them to stay positive. We must remember to teach them good principles, and most of all, about Jesus. Giving this generation these examples will allow them to prevail against all odds. The care you give your children, they will give back to the world.
So we all need to ask ourselves this question: Are we doing enough to inspire our children to care? more >>
