Lenten Film Series, March 20 and 27

Join us for the screening of two powerful films during the season of Lent. (Reminder - if you plan to attend, let Karen in the office know ASAP so there is enough refreshment for all.)

Come to the Fellowship Room for pizza and the movie at 6:00; Pastor David will lead us in discussion following the films.

March 20, 2014, 6:00 pm : THE WAY (2010, PG-13) is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (played by Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage "The Way of St. James" to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him. Through unexpected and oftentimes amusing experiences along "The Way," Tom discovers the difference between "the life we live and the life we choose.”

March 27, 2014, 6:00 p.m . OF GODS AND MEN (2010, PG-13) Eight French Christian monks live in harmony with their Muslim brothers in a monastery perched in the mountains of North Africa in the 1990s. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps though the region. The army offers them protection, but the monks refuse. Should they leave? Despite the growing menace in their midst, they slowly realize that they have no choice but to stay… come what may. This film is loosely based on the life of the Cistercian monks of Tibhirine in Algeria, from 1993 until their kidnapping in 1996.
