Still shot from the movie: The Grace Card.

The Grace Card

Bill "Mac" McDonald (Michael Joiner) and Sam Wright (Mike Higgenbottom) may have been paired up as law enforcement officers, but that doesn't men they have to like each other. Mac's prejudice collides with Sam's religious optimism, causing both to feel offended. The only solution to the problem may be extending The Grace Card. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Why is Mac unable to move on after the death of his first son? How does the loss affect his relationship with Blake and his wife? In what ways does it impact his job? Meanwhile Sam claims spending time with Mac makes him face emotions (such as anger and hate) that he hasn’t felt for a long time. Why?

How do each of the characters use the "grace of God" to overcome these challenges? Why is forgiveness such an important part in their healing process? Is there any other means by which they could learn to "lay down their burdens"? What tools do you use to deal with tragedy, injustice or bitterness in your life?
