Movie Afternoon, Sunday, April 14th Palm Sunday @ 2pm “The Grace of God” A story of Easter Traditions.

This movie, “Grace of God,” demonstrates grace in a powerful way. Over $30,000 has been stolen from a church and it is an inside job. Who would do such a thing? Detective Bill Broadly is called on to investigate and he is a man who thinks Christians are no more than hypocrites. But as he investigates he gets to know the secretary, a single mother named Constance, and he becomes intrigued by her simple faith in God’s forgiveness. He sees her love for her two troubled daughters: Brenda, who needs stability, and Julie, who is separated from her abusive husband.

As Broadly zeroes in on the culprit, it becomes difficult for him to proceed because of his conflicted feelings regarding God and forgiveness, not to mention he has come to like the person he suspects. Terrific actors perform in this movie including Erin Bethea, John Ratzenberg and Lorenzo Lamas. It concludes with a powerful sermon by the pastor that inspires several of his congregation to admit they are human and not perfect. The most amazing miracle takes place when Bill Broadly realizes that Christians are real people with real problems, but they have it within themselves to do some amazing things, like confess their sins. We are pleased to award this amazing movie our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages twelve plus. This is an inspiring movie!
