THE PARISH OF THE PINES MOVIE HIGHLIGHTS
The Parish of the Pines movie highlights how Frank Higgins becomes a leader who will eventually risk much for The Lord. In the film, we see that Frank must die to his dream of becoming an ordained Presbyterian Reverend. He must overcome the judgement of many religious people to follow what the Holy Spirit puts on his heart. Through this process, God cleanses his heart from the desire for approval from others, and he can then begin to truly risk everything in obedience to Christ. Frank develops a consuming love and compassion for the lumberjacks who survive in remote company towns, toiling 12-plus hours a day, facing constant dangers of injury and mortality. Ultimately, the hard work and harsh conditions of the Northern woods of Minnesota culminate in Frank dying young from his sacrificial work for the woodsmen. His faithfulness leads to more than 30,000 lumberjacks finding hope, restoring relationships, and transforming their lives in the faith of Christ. Indeed, one man’s relentless devotion proliferates into revival for all the North country!
