Audience Member So unvarnished...profoundly affecting... with beautiful Beings full of Spirit ...contagious Grace. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A compelling slice of life in Washington, D.C. A lot of Holy Spirit spilling out the door of this little storefront church. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A documentary abut Rev. Perkins, the members of his congregation and the surrounding Wash. DC community as he struggles to do God's work. It shows the value of the inner city church to support the poor and disadvantaged souls who struggle to raise their children and find meaning in their lives. That little building on the corner with the padlocked door, was the oasis, the anchor in these people's lives. It was played out in the story of the man whose son was stabbed to death. He turned to the church to deal with his fear, sorrow and anger. It was difficult to watch knowing that with the current state of the economy I don't think things have improved considerably for these parishioners. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic documentary about a year in the life of the tiny World Missions of Christ storefront church in D.C. -- and about unshakeable faith in the eye of the storm of poverty, violence, and homelessness. Need to see if I can find more info on what's happened to the featured people since the cameras stopped rolling. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member The idea behind this documentary was good. However, the director failed to illustrate the point I believe he wanted to make. There was very little cohesion among the various story lines. The most interesting storyline was about the man (who is on the cover) who lost his son to gang violence. This was a total let down.
