What Join us for this 3-week, Lenten “Film Festival”–exploring aspects of the spiritual formation journey (of being conformed to the image of Jesus our Lord).

Themes we’ll visit include…
the importance and meaning of community in our journeys,
the Christian life as a journey to our “true selves” in Christ,
the resistance we experience in the journey of faith, and
the rewards of persevering in our journeys.

Each evening will follow the same format:
* taking 30-40 minutes to engage a synopsis (including key scenes)
   from the evening’s feature film
* taking another 30-45 minutes of discussion (aimed as much
   at raising questions for ongoing reflection as at any kind
   of firm answers or conclusions)
