Is There Really a God?
Many German immigrants to America settled in Ohio, Indiana, Missouri and Michigan in the early 1800’s. These folk followed the teachings of Martin Luther, and in America they were not persecuted for this, as they were in their German towns. In 1847, twelve of their pastors got together and created “The German Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Missouri, Ohio and Other States.”
As the years went by, the church helped new German immigrants to settle in the Midwest and begin new lives in a land where they could worship as they pleased, without any pressure from any other church to change their beliefs.
This movie shows the lives of several people in a small town Lutheran Church who listen to every sermon, but during the week act much differently than the example of the minister. Is there a real God who can work in our lives every day, or is He just a placebo to keep good people from going wrong? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
