Church screens award-winning documentary
Rockport — Nativity Lutheran Church, 179 Old County Road, will host a screening of “For the Bible Tells Me So” Sunday, Oct. 21 at 1 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. There will be refreshments and a discussion following the movie.
Does God really condemn loving homosexual relationships? Is the Bible an excuse to hate? These questions and more are answered in the award-winning documentary that takes the audience through the experiences of five very normal Christian American families including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson. The movie examines biblical teachings along with various attitudes and interpretations of what the Bible says on the subject of homosexuality.
The movie and the discussion are part of Nativity’s focus to become a more inclusive church and increase community awareness of the dynamics of gay/lesbian issues. In future gatherings, Nativity plans to highlight the issues that surround ageism and mental/physical handicaps.
The screening is free and open to all. For more information about the church, visit nativitylutheran.net.
