Kirsters Baish| It’s truly sad the way liberal America and the leftists in Hollywood are trying to remove Christianity from our country all together. People don’t openly talk about God these days. Those who practice Christianity are often intimidated out of showing their faith, since liberals tend to be so vicious toward Christians.
Hollywood actor Chris Pratt has proved to be an exception.
Chicksonright.com reports, “He has no problem talking about what his faith means to him and he showed up at Disneyland’s candlight Christmas ceremony recently and showed us yet again why so many Christians across America admire him.”
From The Daily Wire:
For two years in a row, the celebrity guest narrator for the Gospel portion has been a star from the Marvel franchise. Last year was Chris Hemsworth; this year was Chris Pratt. Typically, the celebrity guest remains a mystery until the show itself, and though their presence provides an air of prestige, the show is made by the hundreds of musicians and singers who bring their best to the performance. In the finale, all 700 of them joined for a rendition of the Hallelujah chorus from G.F. Handel’s “Messiah.”
Aside from the reading of Luke’s Gospel, Chris Pratt went off-book after the curtain call to deliver a heartfelt message about God, drawing from his own experience as a father.
“Ladies and gentlemen, it was really my honor to share this beautiful Candlelight ceremony with all of you,” Pratt began reading. “It’s been a very special and inspiring night. For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child.”
The “Parks and Recreation” actor drew attention out his own son in the crowd. He spoke of the “pure” love he feels for his child.
“When I stare at this precious little creation of mine here, and I watch the ways in which he tries to please me, I just fill with a love that I feel is so pure, and unending. The way we love our children, the more we love our children, the more we will understand the capacity for our Father in heaven to love us. Each and every one of us a precious creation, and he just marvels in the ways that we can try to please Him. That should give us a great deal of comfort. I know it does for me,” Pratt went on.
To sum it all up, the Marvel actor called on the audience to welcome tomorrow with “hope and love.”
