“No, I don’t think much of religion. Sooner or later they’ll all be exposed as hypocrites.”
A pastoral friend and I were having a conversation the other day. And the adage arose, “never say what you won’t do” as she expounded on her reasons for not judging people, I was reminded my mother used to say that to me all of the time growing up. But she would say, “Never say what you won’t do in this life.” Have you ever done a wrong thing for the right reason? Given a particular set of circumstances you never know… Whether your actions are right or wrong only God can judge.
And this is what our main character Constance Anderson (Julia Parker) is about to find out. A little over thirty thousand dollars is missing from the church donation safe. It’s got to be an inside job. Who could possibly do a thing like this? So they decide to call in a faithless detective, Bill Broadly (Vincent Duvall); who believes all Christians are hypocrites anyway. To him anyone in the church could be guilty, even the pastor! Since everyone has access to the safe, Broadly intends to get to the bottom of this; even if it means rustling a few feathers. He is so sure he’s going to find the culprit…
A sloppy accountant who has a tendency of misplacing money and losing documents. Jerold (Lorenzo Lamas), an ex-felon, who has found purpose as church custodian. A church secretary whose daughter is about to lose her house. A member of the congregation with money problems. And Pastor Stevens (Robert Sisko), who has some hefty medical bills. Who’s the culprit?
In the midst of this investigation Bill is introduced to Constance’ unstable daughter, Brenda (Kelsey Sanders), living at home with an attitude. Her other daughter, Julie (Erin Bethea), hiding out from an abused husband with her two kids. What is a mother to do? We will find that a mother’s prayer changes things.
Detective Broadly discovers the guilty party and in the process finds the love and forgiveness of God. This revelation perpetuates an unexpected miracle. But you will have to see the movie to find out all of the answers.
This movie was originally released January 2014 and is 99 minutes. Can be seen on Amazon Prime and Tubi TV.
