The town of Auburn was always normal, to say the least. True, the people there weren\’t really a \”community\”, but they never noticed…until a stranger named rolled into town one morning. In small ways, began to help out around the town-helping a teen play guitar, helping save a marriage in danger, or teaching a bumbling priest how to speak about faith. An old Baptist church that came down in a storm is his next big project. With the help of stuttering Theo, who dreams of being a preacher, he brings the town together to restore the old building. In this way, the whole town unites and becomes a community. This attracts the attention of Father Tordone, who is a bitter man due to the fact that he lost a position in the Vatican. When the mysterious begins to show up in two places at once and miraculously cures a blind woman, Father Tordone believes is a false prophet, trying to cheat people. When his next huge miracle-reviving Theo from death after he falls from the roof of the newly completed church-overwhelms the town, Father Tordone seeks out an official condemnation from the Vatican. But melts his icy heart, and the reformed Father becomes a Vatican member. sees the Pope himself and reveals himself as Jesus! After his meeting, leaves-but the people of Auburn, with their dreams fufilled and their happiness increased.
