“God’s Garden”: Film by Fr. Moses Berry

Here’s the promo of an upcoming documentary, “God’s Garden.”

A description from the film’s website:

God’s Garden is a journey of faith, race, and redemption through the eyes of Fr. Moses Berry, an African-American Orthodox Christian priest.  It chronicles his incredible life as a direct descendent of frontier legend, Daniel Boone, through idyllic beginnings as a child in the Ozarks, a dramatic awakening and miraculous release from jail, and to a surprising discovery in his African-American roots.  A young Fr. Moses once asked his mother, “Why are there so many races?”  To which she replied, “We are all flowers in God’s Garden.”

Fr. Moses is pastor of Theotokos “Unexpected Joy” Orthodox Church in Ash Grove, Missouri. His story was recently featured in a New York Times feature article: “Black Priest Shares Past, Enlightening White Town.”
