Please join us for a special Sunday forum for the screening of the film Mission: Joy. We will plan to gather after worship to watch the film together at church, with an option to join via Zoom (the film will be screenshared on Zoom, similar to previous video-based GLOW Exploration series).


Masks are required for in-person attendance. (Depending on how many of us there are, we will either meet in the pastor's office or the fellowship hall.)

Or join on Zoom: (Meeting ID: 872 5321 9022)


Mission: Joy is an enlightening, peek-behind-the curtain, 90-minute documentary built around an historic 5-day meeting between two of the world’s most consequential spiritual leaders – His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Born a world apart, both Nobel Laureates, the two men, one a Buddhist the other Christian, met here to celebrate their improbable friendship and share their hard-won wisdom about a wide range of issues from love, karma, guilt, and forgiveness to joy, faith, meditation and reincarnation. This film screening is made possible by an arrangement with the ELCA and the filmmakers, following Archbishop Tutu's death.
