Hosts Kenny Dickson and Mike Hatch look at the Apple TV+ film Greyhound and discuss the faith elements spotted in the World War II, Tom Hanks screenplay.  Based on the novel, "The Good Shepherd" by C. S. Forester, Tom Hanks stars as Navy Cmdr. Ernest Krause, Captain of the U.S.S. Destroyer Keeling, codenamed Greyhound. Krause also commands two other Destroyers providing protection for 37 cargo and troop transport ships crossing the Atlantic during World War II. The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest continually contested battle in the second Word War. The faith elements spotted and discussed by Kenny and Mike include; Confidence in one's faith, God's call, and grace to serve in ministry for Christ. Understanding "the evil foe" includes not only external forces, but the internal temptation to live according to the ways of the world rather than the righteous way and calling of God.   Serving Christ as Jesus served as the Good Shepherd, even willing to laydown one's life.  Such is the Way of Easter People. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever and as such is the place of stability and certainty in the midst of uncertain times and circumstances.. (Hebrews 13:8) Symbolism of water as chaos, Jesus sending the Legion into the swine, (Luke 8, Mark 5,) Genesis Creation account. Going where one Story of Jonah.
