A Place at the Table

with No Comments


Join us on March 15 at 6:30 pm for our next installment of Movies That Matter. We will be screening A Place at the Table, narrated by Jeff Bridges, in the Gathering Place and sharing in discussion afterwards.

Movies That Matter is a recurring program for adults to come together, view, and discuss documentary films that highlight social and spiritual issues. We acknowledge that every film is produced from a point of view with which all of us may not agree. As a group we will look at the film through the eyes of faith and ask ourselves if there is some way for us as individuals, or us as a church, to address the issues raised and make the world a better place for someone.

About The Film (from the producers)

50 Million Americans—1 in 4 children—don’t know where their next meal is coming from. A Place at the Table tells the powerful stories of three such Americans, who maintain their dignity even as they struggle just to eat. In a riveting journey that will change forever how you think about the hungry, A Place at the Table shows how the issue could be solved forever, once the American public decides—as they have in the past—that ending hunger is in the best interests of us all.
