“Volume Three” of our popular film and theology series, hosted by Director of Congregational Care Scott Roby, will run from September 2017 to May 2018. This series’ theme will be “Embracing The Other” and will include films dealing with a challenge relevant to everyone today: how can individuals or communities not only understand the stranger in their midst, but also actively welcome them, despite differences of theology, culture, race, or (yes) even species! Bring a friend!

We will finish the series with Lawrence Kasdan’s brilliant 1991 movie Grand Canyon (rated R).
When a lawyer’s (Kevin Kline) car breaks down in a dangerous Los Angeles neighborhood, a tow truck driver (Danny Glover) arrives just in time to save his life. The two men begin a deep friendship that sets off a chain of unsettling and spiritually surprising events involving their families and friends for years to come.
Kasdan’s powerful and uplifting film about the harsh realities and unexpected epiphanies of contemporary urban life co-stars Steve Martin, Mary McDonnell, Mary-Louise Parker, Don Cheadle, and Alfre Woodard. The New York Times gave the movie four stars and said, “Affecting and hopeful… this is a grand film for our times.” Twenty-seven years later, the sentiment still rings true!
