Spiritual Cinema: Movie provide us with a geat way to learn about many things, including to explore the great spiritual questions of our times. Join Rev. Leslie Takahashi as she explores a new ideas which she is considering for next year, “Spiritual Cinema,” in which we will watch and discuss a movie that allows us to engage with the deep questions of human existence. For this first movie, we will watch: Philomena This searing movie about Irish nuns who ran a home for unmarried mothers, is about the truth that sets us free. While pursuing Lee’s story, the journalist Martin Sixsmith (played by Steve Coogan) rails against belief, God, and the Church as he unravels this story of a boy who was shipped away without his mother’s consent. Curiously, his anger and inquiry is never focused on Philomena’s family or the connivance of the Irish government. Bring a snack to share and a passion for good discussion. Philomena is an award-winning 2013 British comedy-drama film directed by Stephen Frears, based on the book The Lost Child of Philomena Lee by journalist Martin Sixsmith. Starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.
