Fountains to Screen Forgiveness Doc

Power of forgivenessOn Sunday, September 14th at 11am, The Fountains, a United Methodist Church, will continue it’s “Reel Faith” series with the screening of the award-winning documentary, The Power of Forgiveness. Exploring the role forgiveness holds in various faiths traditions, The Power of Forgiveness provides an honest look at the intensity of anger and grief that human nature is heir to. Combining character-driven stories of dramatic transgressions with those of more commonplace annoyances, this compelling film explores the role that forgiveness can play not only in alleviating anger and grief, but exploring the physical, mental and spiritual benefits that come through the practice of forgiveness.

Feature stories include the aftermath of the 2006 killing of five Amish girls in Pennsylvania, the 9/11 tragedy and peace-building in Northern Ireland. Interviews with renowned Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, best-selling authors Thomas Moore and Marianne Williamson and others testify to the healing power of the simplest, most difficult task some human beings may ever face.

Join us for this moving exploration of forgiveness on the big screen in the sanctuary. A brief discussion will follow the screening. Bring a lunch and meet in the Sanctuary at 11am. Drinks will be provided.  The Fountains is located at 15300 N. Fountain Hills Blvd. in Fountain Hills.
