Tune Me, O Lord

Tune me, O Lord, into one harmony
     With Thee, one full responsive vibrant chord;
Unto Thy praise all love and melody,
     Tune me, O Lord.

Something Worth Dying For: A Critique of the Hunger Games

     As of late, the popular world has been awash with discussion of the recently made film The Hunger Games and the trilogy by Suzanne Collins. My sister read the entire trilogy not too long ago, and my mom read the first book after Kelsey and I went to see the movie. Unlike usual, I gave in to the trend, and let Kelsey convince me to read the book after we went and saw the movie. At the heart of the plot is a deadly game: twenty-four children forced to fight to the death, with one remaining victor. What is the excitement all about? What are some of the strengths and weaknesses of the movie and the book, and how do we as Christians fit the Gospel with The Hunger Games?
