‘Where Was God?’ ~
CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
May 20, 2013, a EF5 tornado ripped through Moore, OK. The magnitude of devastation measured over eight times greater than the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima. As the world watched, one question continued to surface-Where Was God?
With this as the backdrop, follow four families as their lives change and intertwine after tragedy and see that through life’s storms God is always near.
Documented in their own words. All at a small elementary school destroyed by the tornado. Fathers rush home to locate their families. A mother rushes to find her son. A teacher uses herself to shield the children. A father waits to find out if his only son, the one he was told he could never have, is alive or not. A family is pulled into service with what little is left of their belongings. And a 13 year old girl and her mother arrive to comfort those with loss, after loosing a father and sister in the Joplin tornado two years prior. These families, that did not know one another before, connect and search to find the fatherhood of God in the aftermath and storms of life.
A heartbreaking story about the Moore, OK tornado tragedy. This is a documentary about discovering hope with some unexpected moments of humor. Such bravery, such overwhelming sorrow, and pain. In the midst of this pain, people found hope and healing.
If you’ve been through a similar tragedy, I would highly recommend watching this film. Remember you’re never alone. God is always with you and there are others that have been through similar tragedies that can truly understand your loss.
‘Where Was God’ is not out on DVD just yet, but you can host a screening.
