All Saints Movie
With all the wild and crazy movies coming out lately, I am happy to see another faith based film being released. The movie, All Saints hits theaters this month and let me tell you it is awesome!
All Saints is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
Here is the trailer to wet your appetite:
I think my favorite line was when the pastor was talking with his son and said, “Let’s keep them in our prayers and ask for God’s help”. His son looked at him and said, “Aren’t you God’s help?”
Oh, and the old farmer telling the pastor that Jesus only had 12 people and He did okay!
Newly ordained, Michael Spurlock’s first assignment is to pastor All Saints, a struggling church with twenty-five devoted members and a mortgage well beyond its means. The best option may be to close the church rather than watch it wither any further. But when All Saints hesitantly risks welcoming a community of Karen refugees from Burma–former farmers scrambling for a fresh start in America–Michael feels they may be called to an improbable new mission.
Michael must choose between closing the church and selling the property–or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community. Together, they risk everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
Discover the true story that inspired the film while also diving deeper into the background of the Karen people, the church, and how a community of believers rally to reach out to those in need, yet receive far more than they dared imagine.
I think the real message was that we have the opportunity to be God’s hands if we will look around and see how we can help others instead of focusing on what we need.
Don’t have a Kindle? Grab one for yourself. They are so nice to use for reading and watching movie. I love my Kindle Fire and my little one uses the e-Reader version (just for reading without the added games and internet options).
