I don't want to give the story away so I'll just introduce it. A number of travelers, a mixed bag of happy, sad, angry, rich, poor and more, all are driving along a lonely road in the wilderness in the middle of a frightful storm. They all find the road washed out and are told by a surly looking officer of the law that they must turn back. One of the travelers remembers having seen a 24 hour diner a few miles back. The trooper tells her she is mistaken, there is nothing on the road for the back fifty miles.
This determined young woman decides to retrace her steps and she finds the diner well lit and shining in the gloomy night. The others eventually find their way there as well and they all decide to wait out the storm in the diner. At least it is warm, they can get food and the owner is a man with a smiling countenance and kind eyes who enjoys a good conversation with anyone who enters. The movie is about their time together throughout the night of the storm.
Bruce Marchiano plays the lead role as the diner owner, a one man show who does it all with love and grace. He goes by the name of Jesus and, as might be expected, is derided for his name by at least one of his visitors.
It's not a long movie, about an hour and a half, but it is well worth watching. And for those who are younger and like your stories with a modern touch, I think it will tell you a wonderful story in a manner you can relate to and appreciate.
God works in mysterious ways. One of the things He finds useful today is using modern technology to explain Himself and His son in a manner that is easy to comprehend and believe. If you are a believer, this movie is definitely one for you. If not, give it a try. It just might open your heart to something wonderful. This is just another opportunity to help you find the Way, the Truth and the Life.
God bless you all and have a safe and productive day with Jesus in your heart.
