“I Can Only Imagine.”
Sunday, June 24 @ 6:00 p.m.
Although the lead singer of the band Mercy Me, Bart Millard, found faith at a young age, life wasn't easy for him. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father, but a career-ending injury (combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential) set Bart on a musical pathway. Chasing a dream with running from broken relationships with his father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road in an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe that was named for his grandmother's favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined. A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness, I Can Only Imagine, beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from God's love-or from an eternal home in Heaven.
