Love him or loathe him, Kirk Cameron (AKA Mike Seaver from TV’s “Growing Pains”) is at it again with a one night only event, “Unstoppable: Where is God in the Midst of Tragedy and Suffering?” to be held on September 24 in theaters everywhere. Presented by Provident Films, Liberty University and Fatham Events, this is apparently a pretty big deal.
According to a recent press release, “Unstoppable” created more than a buzz when both Facebook and YouTube prohibited viewers from access to the film’s trailer. Over half a million fans rallied together to protest and after several days, both sites relented. The reason for the ban in the first place? The sites said that the trailer was “unsafe” and “abusive.” This “Unstoppable” must be pretty powerful stuff.
Cameron has been here before. Last year he saw record-breaking success from his other one-night-only event, “Monumental.” This year “Unstoppable” will be shown live at nearly 700 cinemas nationwide but Cameron will be centered at The Vines at the Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.
So, what is the big deal? “It’s easy to celebrate your faith when things seem to be going well in your life. But when we encounter tragedy or adversity in our lives, we often question ‘Where is God in all of this?’ We wrestle with our hearts and minds to understand the reasoning,” says Cameron. “In Unstoppable, I take [people]on a personal voyage into the depths of my faith, based on something that happened in my life. We discover not only is there an answer to this pivotal question, there is great hope in it as well!”
