First Church goes to the Movies (Follow Up)

Thank you to all who came out to see the movie “Just Mercy” and the following discussion session this past weekend. We were joined by several of the members of Stevens Hill congregation, which was such a blessing!

“We had meaningful conversation on the film itself, the prison/criminal justice system, and what we as believers feel is a solution.”

“I wish I could say what I saw was shocking. It was a powerful illustration of white supremacy’s role in our criminal justice system, and it sparked a lot of good discussion about awareness of the situation that is so prevalent across this country, and even in our own backyard. It also encouraged us to dream about what we as a faith community should do.”

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, we hope you will take the time to do so, as it will be well worth your while!
