Film Screening of In Our Son’s Name by Gayla Jamison

Sponsored by Samaritan Readers
Wednesday, March 8, 6:30—8:00 p.m. in the Ross Room, 3rd floor, Parish House

If the unimaginable became your story, would you still find it in yourself to love like God? Phyllis and Orlando Rodriguez lost their son in the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11. Just days after the attacks they wrote the now famous op-ed “Not In Our Son’s Name,” imploring our government to not respond with vengeance but to find “a rational response that brings real peace and justice to our world.” They took their grief, faced the world, and opened their arms and hearts. In memory of their son, they have befriended the mother of 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, participated in interfaith programs, shared in prison reconciliation groups, and became committed opponents of the death penalty. The film In Our Son’s Name is a documentary that shares their amazing story. Please join Samaritan Readers in a screening of the film, and pay witness to a couple whose example teaches that loving like God is an empowering choice each of us can make every day, even in the face of the worst that can happen. Filmmaker Gayla Jamison will join the screening and be available for Q&A afterward. Contact Jen Waters at faithhopelove42@yahoo.com for more information.

Novel Theology
At Play in the Fields of the Lord by Peter Matthiessen

Wednesday March 15, 7:00—8:00 p.m. in the Fireplace Room, Tate Hall
Facilitated by Laura Trott

In a malarial outpost in the South American rain forest, the paths of a missionary and a stateless mercenary converge and clash. Martin Quarrier has come to convert the elusive Niaruna Indians to Christianity. Lewis Moon, who is part Indian, has come to kill them on the behalf of the local commandant. Influenced by his own travels along the Amazon, Peter Matthiessen has created a novel that explores the varieties of spiritual experience and the politics of cultural genocide, while questioning an individual’s ability to effect lasting change.
