The Devil Wears Prada – A Movie Retreat @ Klang Wesley


“Watching a movie is an act of contemplation… a film becomes an instrument for dialogue with God… in a movie we are shown particular representations of life that draw us beyond our immediate conscious concerns… we move from the superficial analysis to utilitarian agenda (eg. gleaning a moral story) to deep personal engagement.” (Finding God in the Dark, Pungente & Williams)

“Movies are parables of our culture. Movies are made up of “moment” – earthly stories that sometimes have heavenly meanings. Can we discern G|od’s voice in the modern parables of film? yes, it is there, sometime loud and clear, sometimes barely a whisper, sometime even despite the firm maker’s intent.” (Refections on the Movies, Ken Gire)

We go to the movies for a variety of reasons – entertainment, information, distratcion, or simply, to catch a glimpse of our favorite star in action. Consider this – if we are willing, a movie can be a place where God can interact with us and reveal something deep withing us. Some of the questions we are when watching a movie are : Were in the film were you especially moved? What is life-giving? What is not life-giving? What made you feel alive? Allow them to be an entry into prayer; have a conversation with God about what move you – a memory, an association, a question.

As part of its retreat ministry, ICM presents this movie retreat with the firm ” The Devil Wears Prada”, hosted by Wesley Methodist Church, Klang. You are invited to experience how watching and reflecting on movies can be a means of spiritual formation. There will be time for personal reflection, prayer and small group discussion.
