Faith, Media & Culture

Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith and culture:

The documentary Mully opens for a three-night run in specially-selected theaters beginning tonight (10/3-10/5). The film tells the story of Charles Mully. As a six-year-old boy in Kenya, he was abandoned by his family and left to fend for himself on the streets.  From there, he rose to become an extraordinarily successful and wealthy businessman. But this is no ordinary rags-to-riches tale. Searching for meaning in his life, Charles Mully, turns his back on his wealth and instead sets out to improve the lives of orphaned children across Kenya. Jeopardizing his own life and the security of his family, he risks everything and sets in motion an amazing and inspirational series of events. The movie is directed by Scott Haze. The trailer is below followed by a CNN interview with the man himself.  For info, including where to find a theater showing the film, go to   that is nothing short of astonishing.
