To all the readers of the THEODICY blog, a hearty happy Groundhog Day!
I know of no better way of celebrating than watching the famous movie by the same name. Groundhog Day is one of the greatest films in American cinema, and has developed an especially strong following amongst religious leaders and theologians of various stripes, especially those of a Christian, Jewish, Buhddist or Hindu background.
What is it about the film Groundhog Day that rings so true with many positive religions? It is a story of transformation and redemption, and the greatest secret in life: the source of happiness is a life of generosity and love for others, even if they don't deserve it!
Go watch Groundhog Day, you won't regret it.
