ORGAN Freeman played the part of God in the 2007 movie featuring Steve Carell as Evan Almighty. But for the last three seasons Freeman’s been content to serve as host on National Geographic’s documentary series, “The Story of God.” The show overviews humanity’s fascination with the divine.
The other night I watched the animated movie Smallfoot with my kids. It didn’t pique our interest enough to see it in theater, but looked decent enough to spend a few dollars to rent. While I often write about kids’ movies and their underlying worldviews, this one took a more explicit shot at religion.

To be totally honest, it ended up being a pretty fun daddy-daughter sleepover at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for Thanksgiving Day and night.
