Have a Little Faith

Writer Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson) got a very unusual request. A terminally ill rabbi asked if Albom would write and deliver his eulogy. “As is often the case with faith, I thought I was being asked a favor,” Albom says. “In truth, I was being given one.” At around the same time, Albom met an African-American drug addict and drug dealer turned pastor leading a ministry to Detroit’s homeless population. Albom’s experiences with these two inspiring men led to the book Have a Little Faith: A True Story, now a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, starring Martin Landau and Laurence Fishburne that will be shown tonight on ABC.
