A riotous nature documentary reveals stunning secrets that will inspire, delight and transform! Did you know there are 1,068 different kinds of water bugs? All with unique created traits. The natural world cries out displaying the handiwork of the Creator – a fact which is often lost on a digital generation who are not outdoors nearly enough. Can a nature documentary with a Christian worldview jumpstart your family’s adventure into the astounding world all around us? What better way to understand God’s creative character then to start observing all the incredible creatures that he molded and sculpted with incredible detail and forethought! Join me as Dr. Gordon Wilson talks about ways to get out and marvel at what God has made in what is being called a “boisterous nature documentary” entitled “The Riot and the Dance” in theaters March 19th.
