An Invitation from Kelly Schumacher, Visitation Intern:
You’re invited to join us at St. Jane House on Tuesday, May 15th for a screening of For the Bible Tells Me So, a film about the intersection of religion and homosexuality in the U.S. This is the next in our series, “Movies with Jane” featuring thought provoking films that inspire and/or challenge us to become better people!
MOVIES WITH JANE
6:00pm – Doors open to St. Jane House, 1403 Emerson Ave N
6:30pm – Film begins, followed by discussion
Limited to 20 people. RSVP here or to firstname.lastname@example.org When we hit capacity we will start a waiting list.
About the film: Can the love between two people ever be an abomination? Is the chasm separating gays and lesbians and Christianity too wide to cross? Is the Bible an excuse to hate? Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very American families — including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson — we discover how insightful people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Seattle International Film Festival, Dan Karslake’s provocative, entertaining documentary and informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard’s Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech. Feel free to let Brian or Kelly know if you have any questions. Peace!
