“This is the true story of Michael Spurlock, a salesman turned Pastor of a small Smyrna Tennessee Episcopal church. It traces what happens after heu0026#39;s been told by the diocese he must close his church due to low attendances. The events that transpire over the difficult months that follow are as unlikely as they are remarkable. Nothing runs smoothly for Michael, his struggling family or his small band of supporters. The hardships they encounter are at times soul destroying but, hardships can also push people to work against impossible odds – in an attempt to turn them into goals that build community bonds. The outcome of this curious story is one that needs to be seen and wonu0026#39;t be readily forgotten. What can be achieved by people of different cultures – when their ongoing communal existence is threatened – is powerful indeed. An unusual story of survival against the odds, told with intelligence, quality production values, good performances and a better than average music score.”
