Port Angeles Presents Angel in Chains

Would Christ want His people to care about those who are healing from painful relationships? The Port Angeles (Wash.) Church thought so, and the powerful new 40-minute Angel in Chains film provided the perfect vehicle.

Designed for youth and the unchurched, Angel deals with forgiveness and life’s priorities through the true story of a confrontation of values between renegade bikers and a woman and her young daughter on an isolated Arizona ranch.

Donations at the free showing held May 21 raised more than $200 for Healthy Families, the local agency for victims of abuse and family violence.

Afterward, the film's message was driven even deeper by a poignant, spontaneous testimony from a Healthy Families client. Another guest plans to use the film in his ministry with recovering addicts.

Produced by Southern Adventist University students and faculty, Angel is available through the Adventist Book Center. Information about its production story is available online at art.southern.edu/films/news.
