Storyline

"LIFE WILL KNOCK YOU DOWN. THIS FILM WILL PICK YOU UP." This true story is about ordinary people who discover that faith happens in the midst of lifes twists and turns. Every incident in this film is based on actual events that came from the same small church. What do a drug addict, a feisty old lady, an African refugee, an ex-boxer, a salesman and a Chinese entrepreneur have in common? They are all connected through Heights Community Church.

Nine-year old Amy, who, in her own words has been grown up a long time, deals with problems that would break many a grown up. She wonders about why things happen and whether God is out there looking after us.

John - the pastor, faces this question himself as his wife lies dying of cancer and his estranged son has dropped off the face of the earth. In order to experience Gods grace, he learns If you're going through hell, don't stop.

Amy discovers that miracles do happen, tragedy strikes when you least expect, and God is not always easy to understand...

Why God?
1 November 2007 | by (Chino,CA) – See all my reviews

Everyone seems to ask "WHY GOD?" at some point in their life. Rick Garside has done a beautiful job of weaving together a tapestry of varied characters to address this question. We've all heard amazing stories and thought, "Wow, someone should make a movie about that!" THIS IS IT! God rarely does things the way we think it should go, that's where faith comes in. It was very encouraging to see the testimonies of real people enduring some amazing hardships, yet realizing how God works through many ways that we don't always understand. I highly recommend "Faith Happens" to everyone who has ever had struggles in their life (AKA All of us!).
