Quotes

Rabbi Albert Lewis: Did God make trees?
Mitch: Yeah.
Rabbi Albert Lewis: Why trees? Why not a tree? I mean, he's God. What he makes is perfect. So, why not one perfect tree for the whole earth? Instead, he gave us the oak, the spruce, the elm, the redwood.
Mitch: Right.
Rabbi Albert Lewis: So, maybe faith is the same. Many trees, the branches all going to Him.
Mitch: Have you looked at the world lately? The trees are all attacking each other.
Rabbi Albert Lewis: That's not faith, that's hate.

A great family movie, demonstrating the good that exists in our world.
27 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very moving movie...in a time where many movies have 'special effects', profanity, innuendos, etc., Have a Little Faith was a refreshing view of how good Man can be.....I sometimes think that we as a society focus too much on all the negative things going on in our world, and not enough of the positive. This work also demonstrates how people who come from different faiths, different ethnicity's and philosophy's can work towards a common goal and accomplish so much. There is so much good that goes on in our world that many of us are not even aware of. Thanks Mitch for writing your book, and seeing it made in to this movie.
