Phil Vischer, the creator of VeggieTales® and the What's in the Bible? series has a new DVD coming out tomorrow, October 20th. Galaxy Buck Mission to Sector 9 follows Buck Denver as he tries to do "big things for God." Buck thinks he can only follow God by doing big things. He doesn't realize that the small things can be big things if you do it all for God.
Buck works in the call center for the Galactic Missions Board. He has a dream of being a captain of a space ship and running missions instead of answering phone calls. An opportunity comes up for him to fulfill his dream. He puts a makeshift crew together and heads out to the galaxy. They are headed to a supposedly uninhabited planet and Buck had all of his training through an online course and an app. So what could go wrong?
As in all videos by Phil Vischer, there is a greater truth to be learned. Galaxy Buck is no exception. Buck has to realize that his dream of doing "big things for God" may not be what God wants from him after all.
"When we let go of our goals, our desires, our dreams
and just focus on God, walking with Jesus,
the current of His heart carries us along.
My life is no longer mine to worry about.
God has my life suspended in the current of His love."
There are also lots of great references to Star Wars and Star Trek for all of the parents to enjoy as they watch the video with their children. I certainly enjoyed it myself.
