At 12:15 this afternoon, the lights in a Grapevine, Texas, theater went down, and I witnessed with my wife the most moving movie I have ever seen. The theater was packed for Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of The Christ” , yet there wasn’t a sound near the end of the movie just before the final scene. Then, applause when the credits began to roll — yet no one was talking as we all filed out. This movie — more about God’s love than violence, I feel — was difficult to watch. But we walked away with a deeper love for what Christ did for us. In my opinion, it was an amazingly produced and directed movie about the most important part of my life. As I entered the lobby of the theater, I realized the song “Clocks” by Coldplay was playing over the sound system when I heard their words, “No, nothing else compares…” repeated. And I thought, how true this is. There have been many amazing events in our lifetime alone, but I feel that nothing else compares to Christ’s passion nearly 2000 years ago. More on the life, passion, and resurrection of Jesus can be found at New Advent, and more on the Gibson’s movie can be found at Google News.

Many in the Dallas-Fort Worth area may be turning to TWC and weather.com on Sunday as severe storms and heavy rain are possible. My daytime job is at KXAS-TV, which boasts the country’s only 1,000,000 watt radar combined with a high-resolution display, and that radar is now streaming here for those on Broadband connections and with Windows Media Player. My (other) favorite radar for north Texas is the National Weather Service short-range loop. Plenty of other radar and webcam images are in the Dallas-Fort Worth page.
