Thurber Conversation, Virtual — Just Mercy film discussion

Just Mercy film discussion — Thursday 9 July at 19h30-21h

Just Mercy film

All are invited to view the film Just Mercy prior to 9 July. The film is available to rent for €4.99 on a number of video platforms such as iTunes store, Amazon Prime, and Youtube. See film trailer and background material here.

Then on 9 July at 19h30-21h, via Zoom, Pastors Doug and Jodi will be hosting a forum discussion on many of the themes that emerge from the film.

Click here to sign up for this forum discussion by 7 July. (Upon registering for the discussion you will receive questions for reflection as you watch the film.)

Just Mercy tells the story of a Harvard Law School graduate named Byran Stevenson who moved to Montgomery, Alabama in 1985 where he opened a law firm to provide legal defense for those awaiting execution on death row. The film provides a sobering glimpse into how race, class, and systemic sin inform culpability and judicial verdicts in the United States. Evenmore, the film provocatively beckons us as Christians to confront systemic racial sin wherever it is found.

This is a critical time in history. In a world that is divided by the politics of fear and anger it can become easy to stop caring about what should be cared about. It's easy to tolerate what shouldn't be tolerated. Racial justice demands our attention!
