Fall 2020 Schedule:

  • Sept. 24

Focus on "Friendly Persuasion" across all three sessions this fall will

consider challenges of holding onto faith when we are pushed away by

1) social pressure from people around us

2) our disapproval of the behaviors and beliefs of the faithful, and

3) the events unfolding around us that seem to require us to compromise our faith


There will also be opportunity to consider how the filmmakers examined race relations and compare and contrast to our present moment in America.
