Thanks to Scott Jackson for the heads up. There will be a film screening followed by dialog. I think it will be important for atheists to be in the audience, even though this film is not targeted to include the opinions of the non religious.
Beyond Our Differences Film Screening & Community Dialogue
February 5, 2010
Beyond our Differences, a documentary conceived and directed by Minneapolis-based Peter Bisanz, explores the positive role of faith in the world today and the fundamental unity of the world's religions. Where do world leaders in politics, religion, culture, arts and science weigh in on the fundamental issues of our time? How do these leaders apply their own experiences with faith and morality when forming constructive solutions for the world's most distressing and calamitous problems? In what context do faith and religion play principal roles in inspiring our collective peoples toward a more peaceful and compassionate humanity?
