This is the FREE faith and family discussion guide for the film, Selma, in theaters now!

Towards the end of Selma, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his fellow civil rights champions prepare for their march from Selma to Montgomery. Dr. King meets with Jim Doar to talk about the route and safety concerns. In their conversation, Dr. King tells Doar that he’s just an ordinary man focused on what God wants. We often idolize great historical figures like Dr. King, and rightly so.

Without their vision, leadership, and determination, the world might be a drastically different place. However, Selma reminds us that Dr. King was indeed an ordinary man: he laughed, he cried, he loved, he was a husband, a father, and a friend. But Dr. King kept a laser focus on justice and helped create a more equal and just world, a world that more closely resembles the kingdom of God. We are surrounded by distractions. We worry over and obsess over things that will ultimately pass away, all the while ignoring what really matters in life.

Selma and the life of Dr. King encourage us to discern what really matters in life and to keep a determined focus on it. Maybe, just maybe, we can make the world a better place too.

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.
