Ground Hog Day

To my mind, Groundhog Day may well be the best theological movie ever made.

The parable of living the same day over again, the only thing changing being our own choices, is just plain powerful. 

“Is this how you would spend eternity?”  Rita asks, and Phil stops just throwing cards and starts making better choices that help others and that help him grow.

Choose again.  It’s the only power we have to claim our lives.

Thanks for the story, Mr. Ramis.
