Lord, Save Us … Coming to Theaters!

With the brand-spanking-new 35mm theatrical cut of Lord, Save Us From Your Followers debuting in theaters on September 25, it’s time to get blogging!

I’m really excited that the film will finally be released nationally and that EVERYONE can enjoy the film in a comfortable, neutral setting and on a BIG SCREEN. As a filmmaker, I totally love how the movie looks on a big screen. Also, there is nothing like watching Lord, Save Us with an audience.

Over the past year I’ve had the chance to watch the film in theaters at film festivals, with a very diverse crowd, and it has been so eye opening and affirming. To have Christians and atheists, gays and straights, young and old, Catholics and Lutherans, Quakers and Southern Baptists all watching the movie together, laughing and crying in all the same places! What? Impossible you say? Perhaps we have more in common that we’ve been willing to let on. And when the lights come up, the conversations have been positive, open, and thrilling. God is doing something through this movie and I am humbled to be a part of this wild ride.

So I look forward to seeing you out at theaters. Even if you’ve seen an earlier version of the film, you’ll definitely want to see the updated version (details in my next post). Grab a friend and take them to the movies. It doesn’t matter what church you go to … or if you don’t go to church. Same with your friend.

If Lord, Save Us is playing near you, I hope you will stop in … and join The Conversation.
