• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

"Your Name" (Kimi no Na wa, 2016) is great!

    Ever since I saw this movie last year I can't stop thinking about it. I think I have seen it now about 15 times, each time picking up some new detail that I had not noticed before.

    It is part mystery, part love story, and part fantasy, but set in modern times Japan (2013, 2016, and 2021-2022). It is confusing at first, but everything does end up being explained. If you haven't seen it yet, it is available on YouTube and on DVD. Has anyone else here seen it?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I watched it. It was good. I really can't call it the best anime movie I've seen, but it is up there, and it may have the best art. There's a newer Shinkai movie, Weathering With You, that has some connections with Your Name. Give it a shot, too.

    I'm glad someone here watched Your Name. I did also watch Weathering With You and found it almost as good, but not quite, mostly because of the ambiguous ending. The middle parts I liked quite a bit, and there was more character development of side characters, something we did not see in Your Name. It has perhaps even better background art, and shows the gritty underclass of Tokyo including the bad neighborhoods instead of the pretty side of Tokyo we see in Your Name. Although the best Shinkai background art I think is still in his 2013 Garden of Words. The story in Garden is not quite as good but the scenes of rain are gorgeous! All three movies seem to be in the same SCU (The Shinkai Cinematic Universe). The Japanese lit teacher in Garden of Words is the lit teacher in Mitsuha's class in Your Name. And both Taki and Mitsuha have cameos in Weathering. Some say Yotsuha, Mitsuha's younger sister in in there too, but I didn't see it. I hope we will see more good things from Makoto Shinkai. I also really liked the Radwimps music in Your Name.
