The official trailer for the 2017 documentary, "Behold the Earth."
Jeanne announces the new season of Friday night films at Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church in Montrose:
Greetings, Friends and neighbors,
I hope that you have all found something to enjoy during the summer. Our Gather, Inspire, Act team gathered over a delicious meal in Montrose last week and came up with some fine films to watch with you on Friday nights in the coming months.
Here’s what we’re about - the prevailing ways in our current culture tend towards division and isolation. A few glances at a newspaper or newscast can bring on discouragement, maybe even despair. So we Gather at Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church to watch a film together, all in the same room. One screen shared by a dozen or two people. We eat refreshments together. After the film, we sit in a circle and discuss what we have seen and how it relates to what is going on in our world and in our lives. Listening and being heard sure beats staying home alone clicking and posting. We are offering a little bit of community. It’s like a breath of fresh air. We always leave bolstered by each other’s company and encouragement. I hope you’ll come and check it out.
We begin on Friday, September 13, with “Behold The Earth.” It is a documentary that examines the relationship between religion and science and how it effects our attitudes towards the biosphere we inhabit. Released in 2017, directed by David G. Conover, it is enriched by music composed by Tim Eriksen, Dirk Powell and Rhiannon Giddens.
Please feel welcome to come and to bring a friend or two.
Where: Crescenta Valley UMC, 2700 Montrose Ave., Montrose, CA 91020, downstairs in Fellowship Hall
There isn't anything I can add to Jeanne's excellent announcement of the screening of "Behold the Earth" this Friday, except to note that running time is only one hour and three minutes. Here's the link to the documentary's official website:
