Correction to tomorrow's Faith & Film Night

Oops! I was just informed that tomorrow's presentation will NOT be Sophie Scholl but will be the film Spitfire Grill. Sophie Scholl will be our showing for next Friday, July 31st.

In the meantime, Spitfire Grill is the 1996 motion picture which deals with such themes as forgiveness and redemption. I can't embed the trailer here, but you can go to this link to see it (after an ad).

Again, tomorrow's presentation, Spitfire Grill, will start at 6:30 p.m. Hope to see you there!

Faith & Film Night: Sophie Scholl

Tomorrow evening's film presentation is Sophie Scholl: The Final Days, the true story of the final sacrifice of Sophie Scholl, a twenty-one-year-old member of the anti-Nazi student-resistance group known as The White Rose.

This deeply moving film was nominated for an Academy Award in 2005.

Please join us for the film presentation and discussion tomorrow, July 24th, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Faith & Film Night: The Mission

This evening's presentation is the classic film, The Mission, starring Jeremy Irons and Robert De Niro. The film deals with the experiences of a Jesuit missionary in South America during the 18th century. It's a great film to watch during the Year of the Priest, as Jeremy Irons' Father Gabriel is a wonderful role model symbolizing the dedicated and loving service of so many priests. Gabriel is a man of God and a man of peace: "If might is right, then love has no place in the world." This will be a great film to discuss.

Also, the music in this film is phenomenal. Composed by Ennio Morricone, the soundtrack is hauntingly beautiful.

We hope to see you TONIGHT at 6:30 p.m.

Faith & Film Night: China Cry

Our next showing, China Cry, will take place tomorrow, Friday, July 3rd, at 6:30 p.m.

China Cry
is the true story of a young girl, Sung Neng Yee, growing up in Communist China during the 1950s. Although at first excited to become part of the Maoist regime's "new society," she witnesses the misery and hardship her family suffers under its repressive structures. The film is a testament to the power of faith to thrive under the harshest of circumstances.

Here is the trailer, which I found on YouTube. We hope to see you tomorrow!
