Based on true events and bonus featured life interviews of the real people who were involved in 2008 to save the "All Saints" church in Smyrna, Tennessee . Too bad the story was dramatized and left off some hard facts as "brown people fatigue" of some locals. Nonetheless, an uplifting film for everybody, skeptics, cynics, atheist and the faithful. Find out more in the interview with Rev. Michael Spurlock and real characters in "Summary."

Sometimes fun, very faithful. An inspiring story of how a small and floundering church community is uplifted by some unexpected refugees.

Clumsily directed, amateurishly written and acted but still manages to pack more truth, more soul, more uplift than 90% of Hollywood films.

Burmese Karen refugees and church members work together to save the local Episcopalian church in a small town in Tennessee from being sold for the latest big box store location.
wonderful story of acceptance, respect and cooperation.

Watch this movie. I loved it. True positive story about a church & community in Tennessee. I felt good after watching it. Also enjoyed the Special Features section with the real people & story behind the movie. Watch it.

Inspiring true story of a small town that worked together with immigrant refugees and others, to not only save their church from being sold off, but learn acceptance, respect for each other, loyalty, and other human (so-called Christian) values. Suitable for family viewing: no violence, gore, swearing, or nudity. Watch the credits after the movie, as well as some of the extras, to see pictures and interviews with the real people.

*** Spoiler Alert*** (For future references and ponder some more after the film):

My first call was in Africa, building a chapel. But what the people really needed was an aqueduct. So, every day we'd build the chapel, and every night, they'd tear out the wood and add it to the aqueduct. God's wisdom is vast, Michael. We don't always know what he's asking.
===
We both have changes ahead, Michael. You're at the River Jordan, son. You got them to the promised land but you can't cross over. All Saints needs an experienced hand to build its future, and you... Well, you need some seasoning.

Why, if God asked us to plant these crops, would he allow them to be destroyed? Now, I don't know the mind of God, and that's the truth. Was it his voice I heard, or was it mine? That's something to question, something
to pray over, at least for me. A friend of mine felt called by God to go to Africa, build a chapel. But he wound up with an aqueduct. Which is what the people needed. We tried to save our church by starting a farm, but as we fought together down here in these fields, we found that we had actually started something else, something each of us, in our own way, needed more. A community. Baptists from Riverview, Buddhists from Nashville, farmers from Smyrna, farmers from the other side of the world,
connected beyond that building, beyond this land. It's our aqueduct. Maybe it's what God intended all along.

You brought me to a church full of old cranks.
-I think they prefer "senior cranks."

I'm not Korean. Karen. From Burma, next to Thailand.

We were farmers, then soldier. We fight for our land, for our people. Fight in the jungle, in the mountain. They burned our villages. Many dead, many gone. Girls crying over dead mothers, father over dead son. Many family lost or broken. They forced us into refugee camp. Thailand. We cannot leave. There is nothing for children to do, nothing for men to do. Just wait. Wait. The people fight, cry, scream in the night. Young people, they go bad, go crazy. They steal, lie. Girls get raped. Boys, too, sometime. But we have a church hut. It is for rice, really. We sit on rice bag and we sing and pray, say Bible verses and story in church hut. Yeah, many dead, many gone, many family broken. But in church hut, we are one family. Through Jesus Christ.
