Bound by a promise he made to his mother on her deathbed, a pastor seeks to lead his wayward ex-con brother to Christ as they work together to renovate a dilapidated church. But when a desperate man robs the church at gunpoint, one brother’s sacrifice sets events into motion that lead the pastor, the gunman, and the community on an improbable journey of faith and redemption.
Although the first thirty minutes of this movie starts off slow, it's positively worth watching. WWJD: The Journey Continues tells of a pastor who embarks on a journey to restore and renovate a church so he can preach there. His brother, an ex-convict, is brought in to stay and help with the church. The brother has little faith and sometimes little patience. Although there's a brotherly bond, there's also brotherly tension.
One night while both brothers are sitting around and talking with each other at the church, a disgruntled man walks in and demands money from a church safe. Things go awry and the ex-convict brother is killed. But not before accepting Jesus into his heart.
The pastor is riddled with anger over his brother being killed and comes close to giving it all up. Through the introductions of two teenage boys and their mother, along with a drifter who reminds him to question "What would Jesus Do?", the pastor is forced to look within himself and his feelings.
The two teen boys, Nick and Matt, are a lot like the pastor and his ex-con brother in that one is quite rebellious and one wants to do the right thing, even though there's personal struggles. The last time they saw their father, he was in jail. Towards the end of the film, the father plays a big part in a somewhat surprising twist.
Like I said before, the beginning was a little slow but I'm glad I watched through to the end because it was a teachable film about forgiveness, redemption, faith, and tolerance.
