A new documentary by Deidox Films tells the true story of church communities rising to protect the poor from predatory loans. The Ordinance documents an unprecedented battle in Texas towns to protect their citizens from predatory lenders. In a time when political disillusionment is growing, this story serves as an important example of how the best, and worst, of our political system can unite a community.
Christianity Today is proud to partner with Deidox Films to provide this exclusive free debut of this fascinating documentary about the power of the local church to combat injustice and stand for the poor and vulnerable in their communities. When state and local governments stepped aside, Texas churches and faith-based organizations stepped up to defend the vulnerable in their communities from predatory payday loans.
