Hello my TBN audience!
In case you haven’t heard, this month TBN began broadcasting my first film, Finger of God around the world (the next showing will be on September 27 at 5 pm Eastern–spread the word). This little fact has caused an obvious jump in activity for both my website as well as an interest in the film itself. Our phones are ringing off the hook, emails are flooding in, and the whole thing is just so much fun.
For those of you who are just joining us on this journey because you tuned in to some weird movie called Finger of God on TBN, welcome. You are probably here because you want more information on what the heck you just saw and whether or not it’s actually real. I can assure you, everything you saw in that broadcast is real. I saw it all with my own eyes and filmed it all myself (except for the China footage). It was a film I never intended (or wanted) to make. But God met me in a church in Toronto and gave me one of the funkiest experiences of my entire life (the gist: an angel named Breakthrough cutting through my own judgments and lots of tears on my part). From that point on, I was a man obsessed with chasing the Spirit of God around the world to answer the basic question: "Is there more to the Christian life than going to church, believing the right stuff, and trying to be a good person?" The answer, simply, is yes. The 1 hour you just watched on TBN gives just a hint at what I discovered.
In case you didn’t know, the actual movie is about 45 minutes longer than what you saw. It’s the complete picture, really, with lots of fun stuff with teenagers in Redding, CA, more with Heidi Baker in Mozambique, and lots of incredible quotes from interviews with some of the most amazing, loving people I have ever met.
For everyone else, who just checks in once in a while to see if I’ve posted something new, here’s a little reward for having made it this far down my blog.
The Deluxe version of the film will be released, officially, on November 11. It’s going to be pretty awesome, too. 5 dvds, hours and hours of extras…if you liked Finger, you’re going to LOVE this. We’ll start taking pre-orders very soon, so come back often to make sure you get yours right away!
More on what’s happening with the next film, Furious Love, coming soon…
