Faith and Film ~ for Young Adults with Kathryn Lester-Bacon and Alex Fischer Kathryn and Alex will be leading a young-adult oriented discussion group throughout the month of March in the Heritage Room. We'll be looking at films both old and new, obscure and popular, to see how they might contain nuggets of wisdom and inform us all on our daily journeys of faith. We'll watch clips from the film in class, but you can also watch the movie ahead of time to better inform our discussion. Week 1 will begin with a look at "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" the recently released documentary on the life and work of Presbyterian pastor/TV personality Fred Rogers. This Class will meet in the Heritage Room.
