We didn’t grow up in a religious home, but we were spiritual. As I’ve grown older I find myself becoming more spiritual and more intrigued with faith. My girls attend a religious school and are learning all of the customs, holidays and traditions of our religion. In most cases they know more than I do at this point. While I may not faithfully practice religion, I consider myself a very spiritual person. I find a certain kind of peace and tranquility comes with it.

The Shack Movie

Mackenzie “Mack” Allen Phillips (Sam Worthington) enjoys a blissful life with his wife and their three children. Until the unthinkable happens and his youngest daughter Missy is abducted from their vacation campsite. Evidence indicates Missy has been murdered, but her body is never recovered.  The tragedy sends Mack spiraling into “the great sadness” that isolates him from family and friends, causing him to question his innermost fundamental beliefs.  Teetering on the edge of self-destruction, he receives a mysterious letter, apparently from God, urging him back to the scene of the crime—an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness.

Despite his doubts and fears, Mack journeys to the wintry mountain woods to revisit the most agonizing moments of his life. There he encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa (Octavia Spencer), at the shack. Through them, Mack will find important truths that will transform his understanding of Missy’s tragedy and change his life forever.

  • We are not “religious” at all, but I think faith or spirituality or whatever anyone calls it is a part of being human. And we can understand healing from grief. This might be a very good movie.
