This movie reminded us in some respects; of the television series played by Michael Landon, "Highway to Heaven", which was always a good family oriented program to watch.
It is a Christian themed movie, that is thought provoking in the fact, "the drifter" played by John Schneider arrives in town. The drifter is destitude, jobless and homeless and seems to be rejected by all who he meets in the town including the pastor. The pastor is grappling with deep emotional hurt after losing his wife and son to a horrible traffic accident. Although he still acts as the pastor of this congregational dwindling attendence at this church, his faith is fractured and was no longer interested in helping the less fortunate; especially "the drifter" who came into town and in his church office looking scraggly, dejected and scorned upon.
The movie starts showing a community divided; by those who want to save the Local Church which has run out of funds to continue, and a business group who wants to purchase the church location and real estate so they can bring in a casino and hotel to revitalize the economy of the town. The bank forecloses on the church and the demolition order is given. Despite the rejection and being destitude, "the drifter" hangs around town and challenges those who have the capacity to give, challenges the pastor to have faith and serve his congregation. At an upcoming meeting at the chruch; the drifter shows up, stands up and asks all those in attendence, "What would Jesus Do?" before collapsing. It is learned that this drifter is terminally ill; and as people start reflecting on their conscience, "What would Jesus Do?" the community spirit becomes revitalized, the pastor has renewed his faith and commmittment to his congregation, but most of all, hope is restored in this town.
The movie is worth watching and worth purchasing for your own movie collection.
