Nurturing Faith Through Fiction
Meets monthly on the First Thursday | 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
This group, organized by Ron Damholt, meets monthly to explore and to be engaged by fine works of fiction, either a novel read preceding the meeting or a film they screen together. In their discussions they consider questions such as the moral qualities of the characters, the presence and leading of God in the work, the author’s exploration of good and evil, of justice and injustice. And they are regularly being challenged by the movie or by the text to more obedient, faithful living.
This summer this group will be watching (and discussing) movies. On July 6 they’ll screen The Tree of Life (2011, directed by Terrence Malick), and on August 3 they’ll watch The Crucible (1996, directed by Nicholas Hytner). During the summer, they are also reading Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s great 1890 novel The Brothers Karamazov, which will be the topic for discussion at the meeting on September 7. Questions?
