If you are attracted by high-tech special effects and big Hollywood names, The Grace Card might not be the movie for you, but if you are interested in watching a film that's profound enough to impact your own life, you definitely cannot afford to miss this wonderful film.

The Grace Card is being released this weekend, Feb 25-27 across the nation, and I seriously hope many will find it in their hearts to go watch it. Why, you probably wonder? The reason is simple: Our society is deeply divided and wounded, and The Grace Card offers a different approach to stop the bleeding.

Mac McDonald loses his young son in a tragic accident, and his life spirals down from that moment on. As years pass, his relationship with his family becomes strained, and his bottled-up angry feelings wash into his attitude at work, slowing down his progression in his career as a law enforcement officer.
As a final straw, Mac is forced by his superior to pair up with Sam, an African-American pastor who took the job as a police officer to pay the bills, though his true dream is to create a self-sustaining, full-time ministry.There is little love lost between the two men, and their forced partnership triggers feelings neither of them are happy to face. They accept their shared task out of necessity, but even Sam struggles to understand why their paths intersected.When tragedy strikes, the design becomes suddenly clear, and both men discover that nothing happens by mistake. In a breathtaking turn of events, they both realize that Divine Grace was at work the whole time to bring healing not just in their individual lives but, as a reflection, to the collective of society.

The Grace Card is a fantastic document on forgiveness and a powerful reminder that each of us is but a tile in the tapestry of life. A message most of us desperately need to acknowledge.

Written by a 14 year old Girl:
My family and I really really enjoyed watching the movie "The Grace Card". It was an incredible movie with great themes and very moving and inspiring messages. My brothers playfully teased my mom and I about our tears after the movie because they had seen us crying during one of several emotional scenes.

The Grace Card: "I promise to pray for you every day, ask your forgiveness, grant you the same, and always be your friend".

Mac is a man who has been drowning in guilt and anger for seventeen years. When his five year old son, Tyler, was killed by a black drug dealer's car, Mac's family fell apart and Mac became a racist police man so that his tragedy would not happen to any one else and he could feel less guilty for destroying his family. His other son, Blake, loves his mom but can't stand the level of perfection his dad expects of him because the standard his father holds him up to is his dead five year old brother. Mac's wife can't get a job because she fell at work and now has a disability. 17 years have gone by since the death of their 5 year old son and their family is falling apart.

Sam is Mac's new police partner and a pastor who is working hard to get enough money so that he can become a full time preacher. Since Sam is black and Mac is a racist, their relationship doesn't start as a friendly one. Sam doesn't understand why God has put Mac into his life, but his wife thinks that God has put Sam into Mac's life. It turns out their both right as tragedy strikes Mac's family once again and finally brings Mac to his knees before God. It is through Sam's friendship and sacrifice that Mac sees God's Grace and is able to share it with another who has hurt him deeply. This story is about Grace, not judgement.

This movie addresses racial prejudice, pain of unresolved grief, the effects of hate and unforgiveness and its impact on the person plus all those who come in contact with him. Well acted. I felt inspired by the message and hope to see more movies which are based on fostering individual growth through overcoming prejudice, anger and unforgiveness.

Just this minute finished watching this movie, which I have to admit, when I found out what it was about I hesitated. Why is it that we hesitate on good and accept bad so easily? This movie is about another side; one that promotes love instead of hate; good instead of bad; right instead of wrong. It is a movie that reminds us of another time when "love your neighbor" stood for more than a sign on the wall...it was a way of life. In a world where too little is ever forgiven this movie shows another way. Did I think it was good? I think I am going to carry a Grace Card myself from now on. The world can use a little more love and grace in the world. I suggest you do the same. Enjoy.
