5 Must-watch Inspiring Movies this Holy Week in Quarantine
This week is a celebration of God’s faithfulness and goodness. During the Holy week, believers are expected to practice and carry on traditions as they observe during this time of the year. Most devout Christians would go to church as they express their faith. Some may enjoy a park visit to their departed loved ones while sharing stories and having a great time with each other’s company. Others may go to the beach and enjoy bathing in the sun and playing beach games, taking selfies and videos to keep happy memories.
But with the enhanced community quarantine, it seems that we are refrained to do such traditions. How can we nurture our spirituality, goodwill, and benevolence during this pandemic? Here are 5 must-watch inspiring movies this Holy week you can catch with your family by Golden Haven.
