Father of Lights - DVD Review & Giveaway

"Religious spirit is more concerned with what we look like than what we really are."

Jake Deere, Dallas, Texas



I am so pleased to be sharing with my readers Father of Lights,a memorizing documentary by Darren Wilson seeking to display the heart of God.  This 98 minute film moves through visions of the impossible.  Wilson, on a personal journey to film God and understand His character, introduces viewers to individuals receiving God's love in surprising places.  A pastor touches the heart of a young woman in the middle of a booming dance club amidst half naked, gyrating ladies.  A Chicago Christian brings a leader of the Latino Kings to tears while beginning a personal relationship with God.  A former drug addict shares the love and power of Jesus across the world by healing the physically pained.  These and others moments in the film can only be understood as miracles.

Wilson mentions several times in the documentary the love of God.  He expresses frustration in those that preach a God of hate.  In coming into contact with demonstrator in Venice Beach, Wilson asks him if he may be more effective if his approach was loving instead of rebuking.  Though the demonstrator holding the sign something similar to "God hates fags", he felt as if his approach was, in fact, loving.  What this moment captures is the belief that instilling fear in others will bring them to God, when others, such as Greg Boyd from the Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, believe in AGAPE love.  God is not angry.  As Wilson states, "The truth, as you will see vibrantly in this film, is that He is the most loving, compassionate, and wonderful Father you can imagine."

I am thankful for this film.  I am thankful for bringing me back to the Holiness which is God.  I am thankful for the reminder of His intense, flawless, and enduring love.  I am, again, humbled by His gift of grace--that I am His child and He is my Father and I do not need to earn it.  At the end of this film, I cried.  No.  I sobbed.  I was refreshed and renewed.  I was reminded.  I was brought Home.
