Courage Under Pressure

Corrie ten Boom
Saturday evening I watched The Hiding Place.  This is a film (1975, after the book, 1971) telling the true story of Corrie ten Boom and her family who lived in Holland when it was occupied by the Nazis during WWII.  In their home, the Ten Booms sheltered many Jews from the SS.  But the family’s activities were eventually discovered by the Nazis.   The family ended up in concentration camps with several family members dying there.  A main point of the film is that efficiency and effectiveness as means must always remain secondary to the purposes served, and that faith in the love of God (no matter what adversities encountered) sets the ultimate purpose for Christian believers.  (The Corrie ten Boom story)
