The premiere of Jesus Revolution took the box office’s No. 3 spot this past weekend.

Moviegoers defied film critics’ reviews of the newly released film, which is based on the real-life experience of hippies being invited into church by Southern California pastor Chuck Smith, who was played by Frasier star Kelsey Grammer. The film depicts the Christian movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s that spread across the country as thousands joined the faith.


Jesus Revolution grossed $15.5 million while showing on less than 2,500 screens across the country. The film trailed Walt Disney’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which grossed $32 million in its second weekend, and Universal’s Cocaine Bear, which grossed $23 million across 3,500 screens in its opening weekend.

So its *May(?) 1973, Some people I knew were becoming Christians. 2 of them let me crash in their garage (they wouldn't let me in the house and for A Very Good Reason).  I wake up one morning, look around, and say "This Ain't Working Out The Way  Thought It Was Supposed To."  I wasn't sure how it was supposed to be, But I was sure  it didn't involve me sleeping on a dirt floor with  $1.25 and a Very tenuous grasp of reality. So  I said "God,  don't know if you are there, but if you are Take over, because you can't F this up worse than I have."  And God Did. Where I am 50 years later,  and the memory is Still Fresh.

I don't remember The early 70's. I did more dope by accident than most people did on purpose.
