Raw Faith is a moving love story of Unitarian Universalist minister Marilyn Sewell’s decision to retire from her church, while struggling to reconcile her self-image from her childhood. Unexpectedly, love enters her life — a counterpoint to her lifelong doubts.
Imagine being followed around by a film crew for two years. That’s the extent to which Marilyn opened her life to share her journey and struggles, as you’ll hear in our phone conversation. Raw Faith is wonderfully done, and I think you’ll be moved, as I was.
The Documentary Channel is primarily available on satellite television services DISH Network (Channel 197) and DIRECTV (Channel 267). Check their web site for additional show times if you can’t catch Sunday’s premier.
The film is also available on DVD from Alive Mind Cinema.
If you haven’t already heard it, Marilyn shared her religious journey on Episode 20 of the Be Spiritual podcast.
