Ethan Jenkins (Michael W. Smith) and Jake Sanders (introducing Jeff Obafemi Carr) are both passionate pastors who worship the same God from the same book--but that's where the similarity ends. White and well-to-do Ethan is comfortable in his music ministry at the media-savvy suburban mega-church, The Rock; Jake is a street smart African-American who ministers to the gang members, teen mothers, and drug addicts of the urban Second Chance. When they are suddenly thrown together in a tough neighborhood and forced to work side by side, Ethan discovers there is no boundary between the streets and the sanctuary. But can the faith these two men share overcome the prejudices that divide them to give themselves and a struggling urban church a second chance? Written by
Redemtion and forgiveness come to play boldly in this movie and it's fun to see your typical black guy and whitie go at each other. I really enjoyed seeing them interact with each other and try to get along. The movie plays out these roles and these two grown ups act like children with their haughty or arrogance ways consistently picking fights with each other ...thinking that each one is better than the other. I'm glad they finally got it figured out near the end..but I would have been more delighted to see them play this out in more depth.
This movies does leave a lot unanswered, but is a great conversational type of movie.
Acting was good. Pleasantly surprised by both Jeff Carr and Michael W Smith. The two of them seem to fit the roles that they were given and they played them well.
If you want to see a challenging movie with a great message that will lead you to want to make a difference right where you are...see this movie..it will motivate and stir you to ponder on it.
It's all in the serve! Sherry
