The story behind the lyrics - I Can Only Imagine

5034741412513.jpg

It's the song that brings ultimate hope to so many - often in the midst of life's most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.

Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn't easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury - combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential - set Bart on a musical pathway.

Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with his father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road in an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe - named for his grandmother's favourite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.

Running time: 110 minutes

The Gospel of John faithfully re-creates the stories of John's gospel with narration from veteran actors Brian Cox (Troy, the Bourne films) and David Harewood (Blood Diamond, Homeland).

The Lumo Project's goal is to film all four of the gospels in the most realistic and authentic way possible. Sharing the gospels for a visual age is the Lumo Project's mission and goal.

God's Not Dead

Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper, from High School Musical 2) has an eventful first day at college. His Philosophy teacher, Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo, from Hercules & Andromeda), begins class by demanding that his new students declare that God is dead. If not, they fail his course. Surrounded by classmates scribbling those three words on their fresh notepads, Josh faces a dilemma.

Does he stand up for his faith or secure his future?

Choosing the narrow path Josh nervously refuses declaring himself a Christian. From that moment on Josh has his own special assignment: to prove God's existence to his atheist professor and his many classmates. Over the course of the semester he must continually stand on the intellectual platform and present his case. Can he actually prove the existence of God?

Described as "entertaining, profound, and powerful", God's Not Dead intertwines stories of faith, doubt, and sheer disbelief. The result is a film that will cause viewers to reflect on their own belief and spark religious discussion. Perfect for family and youth group viewing.

God's Not Dead shows how God works with and through people and how everything fits together in God's plan to help people get where they need to be. The movie also shows that, no matter how little faith you have, God will use that to help those that are in need of God. You'll see how Christians - and non-Christians -  experience God when they really begin to search for the answer to whether God is alive and active.

Approx: 120 minutes.
