Capturing the on-stage energy and off-stage hearts of the Australia-based band Hillsong UNITED, HILLSONG - LET HOPE RISE is a new motion-picture genre: the theatrical worship experience. The film explores Hillsong's humble beginnings and astonishing rise to prominence as an international church whose songs are sung every Sunday by more than 50 million people worldwide.
A movie about imperfect people in an imperfect world, trying to be a light in the dark to others.
I watched this in the theatre with about 7 other people, it was a spiritual experience. It was really nice to see the struggles people go through and overcome, and how God on occasion picks you up and walks you past the point where you would fail.
It also just instilled in me a view of the Church as it ought to be, without walls. There was a horror flick a couple doors down, with people waiting to get in. I think that if they had watched this instead, they would have had a memorable night, and left with more love and a stronger bond towards their brothers and sisters on earth, instead of weaker one.
It's nice to see light amid the darkness. Hopefully the right person will walk into the theatre to check it out, and start their journey on the path that leads back home.
