A story of Christmas in a small New Mexico church struggling with unresolved conflicts. May it be the best present you have ever received!
Mountain View church is falling apart. Deep-seeded resentments and long held rivalries tear at the fabric of the congregation, dividing the pews and creating a no-man’s land of unspoken rivalries. Into the crumbling church comes Stephen, a new pastor fresh from seminary and unaware of the problems that plague the congregation. Stephen's only mentor is Jeremy, a young boy who introduces him to a mysterious set of antique hand-bells and who shares his belief that the bells may hold the secret to reuniting the divided congregation.
Jeremy gradually reveals his knowledge of the bells' healing potential. He encourages Stephen to re-form the bell choir and hints that the bells also have the power to draw his ailing father back to the church he once loved. Stephen, meanwhile, is unaware of the deeper mystery behind Jeremy’s afternoon visits.
Using the central components of music - rhythm, pitch, melody, and harmony, Jeremy's Bell paints a picture of what Mountain View Church can become. In a powerful climax, the music of the bells, and of Jeremy’s bell in particular, sounds far beyond the confines of the small church. The message of Jeremy’s Bell rings with the spirit of Christmas for all to hear!
