Cities4Life Ministry Members and friends, we brought you the story a couple months ago about a new pro-life film, Voiceless, that we completely support. The film is in production now and is set to be released next October. Below is a synopsis of the storyline of this powerful film:
Jesse Dean is a recently discharged soldier who had a rough upbringing, but because of his wife, found God and now is totally devoted to his faith.
He and his wife move to Philadelphia so he can take a new job as an outreach minister at an old church whose membership has been declining. As everything is going well and as he starts connecting to the community, he discovers there’s an abortion clinic directly across the street from the church.
Now, this character, Jesse, considers abortion one of the greatest sins of our nation, but because of his own insecurities and fear of confrontation, most of which stem from his life as a soldier and from events that happened before he found God, his response is to shirk responsibility and get others to deal with this issue.
He goes to the pastor and to several others in the church and tries to get their help to no avail. He wonders why they aren’t doing anything about the clinic but sees nothing but apathy from those around him and eventually, in himself as well.
One day something tragic and personal happens to him while he’s going about his everyday routine, an incident that confirms something must be done about the clinic. Although realizing something must be done, he also realizes no one wants to take action in doing it.
He comes to the point where he begins to take action himself. He gets involved but the more involved he gets, the more resistance he gets from those in the church and the community. They don’t want him to be an “extremist” or their church to be associated with activism or crossing the line of church and state.
His wife, who thinks his actions will get him fired or land him in jail, also comes against him.
Finally, it comes down to him having to make a choice: is he going to take the easy way out and back off, which is what everyone wants him to do, or will he face a major confrontation which will require him to become a true soldier for God and put everything on the line…not just his job, but his freedom and marriage as well.
This film encourages people to stand up for what they know is right, particularly as it pertains to taking God’s truths into society to address social issues.
This exciting film has great potential to bring awareness to the abortion epidemic and to call the Body of Christ to action!!! There are some action items that YOU can be a part of in making this film a huge success.
1.) Talk To Your Pastor and Others!
We need as many Pastors and pro-life leaders as possible aware of this project so that they can spread the word to those in their congregants and to those in their sphere of influence. In order for this to happen, we need supporters of the film to reach out to as many people as possible. The more people we have behind this film and supporting it, the greater chance for a dynamic box office showing.
2.) Use Your Social Media Accounts
Social media is one of the greatest tools in reaching countless people. By posting a link to Voiceless the Movie on your social media pages and in your groups along with a synopsis of the film, you can indeed bring attention to this worthy project!
