Earlier this month I was invited to take part in a screening of I Can Only Imagine coming out this weekend. I know this song well, as many others do. It is a powerful song my Bart Millard of MercyMe which touches you in the heart.

Bart has finally shared the full story behind the song, which includes his own personal story of struggle and acceptance and how his family played part in it all.

This movie is a powerful story of redemption and healing and is portrayed by a strong cast. J. Michael Finley plays Bart in his first movie role. Not just his first starring role, but his first ever movie role. Dennis Quaid plays an excellent character as Bart’s father, among the many other well played parts in the movie.

If you know the song or not, I strongly recommend you go see this movie. You’ll be touched by a powerful story.
