>> Beginning February 4 at noon, our Encounter group will be screening a series of movies. Bring your lunch! The first film: Risen (2015), “follows the epic Biblical story of the Resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer. Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a powerful Roman Military Tribune, and his aide Lucius (Tom Felton), are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem." This will play over two weeks, Feb. 4 and 11.
>> February 18 and 25 film: Luther (2003) "Armed with no more than his faith and quick wit, one man confronts the greatest powers on earth. Martin Luther's (Joseph Fiennes) bold actions foster an era of personal and religious freedoms unprecedented in history. A young law student, Luther abruptly enters a monastery when he believes his life is spared during a violent lightning storm. Luther proves an eager, apt disciple and is selected to travel to Rome on church business. He enters the holy city with the wide-eyed ideals of a young man only to have them shattered."
