Answer ALL of the following questions.  Your answer for question #1 should be two or three sentences.  Your answer for questions #2, 3, and 4  must be five to ten or more sentences long.  Answer it in a word document, save it, and either print it off and hand in or e-mail it to me.

1)  If you were to boil the message of this movie down to one sentence, what would it be?  Write a sentence or two explaining what scenes in the movie led you to this conclusion.
2)  Which of the main characters surprised you the most?  Explain why.

3)  Landon obviously had a “wall” up as far as his dad was concerned.  Eventually, Landon forgives his dad and thanks him for what he did for Jamie.  How might this “wall” have blocked Landon’s faith and experiencing God?  This movie clearly illustrates the power of love.  Describe one scene in the movie that showed how love brought about change.  Did the change brought about by love happen because the character(s) were open to God’s love?  Explain. 1 John 4:8 says Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. Could this be God bringing about changes in the characters as they opened themselves up to God’s love? Why or why not?

2)  Jamie describes her faith in God as ”the center of everything”. In another scene, after Landon tells Jamie that he loves her, she says, “I don’t need reason to be angry at God”.
