John Christensen is a pastor of a church in a small town. Over time John has begun to desire the things of this world. His wife Sarah tries to convince John to return to the spiritual passion with little success.
Jesse, a stranger, comes into town and into John's life. This sparks a series of events that leads John into a revealing of God's desire. John's passion returns. He discovers, however, that most of his congregation is still living worldly lives devoid of their own spiritual passion. They believe that perception is more important than truth. John realizes he is partly to blame.
John will risk his friends, family, and church, to bring himself and the congregation back to God.
