It's Movie Time!
Martin Scorcese once said, “I can see great similarities between a church and a movie-house. Both are places for people to come together and share a common experience.”
While this space is neither a church or a movie house, each month, we will be watching a film with some surprising – even unlikely – cinematic choices. Then we will discuss the spiritual messages and lessons that we can take from the story and the characters as we enhance our understanding ofwho we are and how we are in the world.
The 1st Sundaywe will gather at 2:30 pm to view the film and discuss the spiritual lessons. Feel free to bring BYOB. Popcorn will be provided. Love offerings accepted
