Raw Faith

Last week I finally had the opportunity to see the movie Raw Faith. The film tells the story of Marilyn Sewell, Unitarian Universalist minister, as she makes the difficult decision to leave her Portland church and, amidst her doubts and deliberations about the meaning of her life, falls in love.

The portrayal of Marilyn’s life journey is deeply moving. Marilyn’s transparency in sharing her life is inspiring, and filmmaker Peter Wiedensmith’s telling of the story is amazing, considering this was his first such endeavor.

If you have the opportunity to see the film, do so. It’s available for download now, is scheduled for airing on TV, after which it will be available on DVD. You can watch the trailer below.

I had the privilege to interview Marilyn about her spiritual journey, which became Episode 20 of this podcast. You can listen to our conversation here, which I think nicely complements the movie. When Marilyn and I spoke, I had not yet seen the film.

    It’s not available for download if you’re a Linux user (I’m guessing that this is due to some sort of digital rights management that limits what type of computer and what sort of software can be used to view the film).

    I guess I will have to add it to my Netflix DVD queue and wait for the DVD release.

    Steve, sorry that you can’t access the download on a Linux machine. Hopefully other channels will be available soon, as it’s a compelling film.
