"Gospel Without Borders" brings more light and less heat to the issue of immigration.
It separates myth from fact, examines what the Bible says about treatment of the "stranger," shows the experiences of documented and undocumented immigrants, and provides handles for Christians to advance the common good.
The ecumenical documentary highlights stories in five states: Arizona, Arkansas, North Carolina, Alabama and Iowa.
Some stories break the heart. Others inspire the spirit. Still others challenge the mind. But all come together and show that the Christian gospel is indeed without borders.
"We're grateful that our documentary on faith and immigration has a chance to compete for TV eyeballs," Cliff Vaughn, media producer for EthicsDaily.com, said.
"Sane voices of faith don't get enough airtime, but Soul of the South is changing that," said Vaughn, who expressed hope that EthicsDaily.com readers would share broadcasting information with their churches and networks.
