I watched the movie "For the Bible Tells Me So" today. It was so well done and so moving. And I learned about Soulforce watching it. So here I am. I've recently been feeling so saddened and discouraged by the hatred and bigotry I continue to encounter in this life. I spoke with a man just this past week. He is of Indian decent, and felt so angry over the discrimination he experiences daily. I am feeling called to be more outspoken about justice issues in our country. LGBT issues and issues of racism are weighing heavy on my heart these days. There are still so many people who are hearing the wrong, very outspoken messages of the Christian fundamentalist movement.
Anyway, I plan to set an evening in the fall to shre the movie "For the Bible tells Me So" with the Magyar UCC serve I serve. And I'll share it with the pastor's group I belong to.
