Christ Church (20 N. American Street) will host two free screenings of the 2012 Sundance-selected documentary Love Free or Die on June 4 and 5 at 7pm.
About the film:
The media too often represents the Church and gay communities at odds with one another, ignoring the witness of those like Bishop Robinson who are able to create lives that are true to their identity and their religious commitments. Working with the Groundswell of Courage campaign (www.groundswell-movement.org), we hope to inspire the faithful of every tradition to stand with Robinson for the full inclusion of dignity of LGBT people in our religious communities. There will be an opportunity after the film for viewers to share reactions and ideas in a forum moderated by one of Groundswell’s producers. Will you join us and add your voice to the conversation?
