Chris Pratt may be one of the biggest stars in the world, but he doesn’t live for the spotlight. His priorities are all outside of Hollywood– his farm, his son, and time to be at peace outdoors. Pratt is away from all of those things right now gearing up for a media tour supporting the sequel to Jurassic World. His longing for home led to him making a montage of his son on the farm, scripture, and an encouragement for all of us to spend more time outside.
“Missing home, missing the farm, missing the boy, missing the island,” he wrote in the caption. “So I’m sharing this video as a way to express my gratitude for all the blessings in my life and to entice any of you watching this who may feel unease or anxiety with the state of our world to just breathe, slow down, go outside, find something not man made and give it a good look. A leaf. A bug. A cloud. A sheep. As William Cullen Bryant says, ‘Seek communion with her visible form….go forth under the open sky and list to nature’s teachings.’What a beautiful creation over which we’ve been given the responsibility of stewardship.”
Pratt set his montage to the song “Chain Breaker” by Zach Williams and added text from Psalm 126:2, “At that time we laughed loudly and shouted for joy. At that time the nations said, ‘The Lord has accomplished great things for these people.”
