This year at Heartland Film Fest hundreds will come together for screenings of God in the Box (trailer). A documentary film that, “explore[s] our diverse and unique views, together as a community, no matter your beliefs or faith or lack of belief.” (from God in the Box press release):
“The film chronicles the journey of a curious Box that pops up on street corners, where people step inside and share drawings and testimonials illustrating their private views of God. Theologians, historians and a mythologist join us on the journey to understand why we see God the way we do in the 21st century.”
Sound familiar? Sounds a lot like us, huh? That’s why we’re proud to announce a partnership between Indy Interfaith Conversation Network and God in the Box with partner organizations Lockerbie Central UMC and the Earth House Collective.
Join us on Sunday, October 16th, 6pm at Lockerbie Central’s progressive approach to Christian worship followed by clips of the film and a live Q&A session with the film’s production crew. Then come out to one of three screenings for Heartland on October 17th, 18th, or 22nd.
Stay tuned for additional opportunities to connect with God in the Box crew and engage with us, the Indy Conversation Network, doing what we do best: Conversation.
Director, facilitator & conversation partner Adam Hayden is contributing to a new blog series for Lockerbie Central United Methodist. Check out the first post: Being present. Being balanced.
The series is based on the Rule of Life for Lockberbie.
Thanks for staying tuned.
As I left our time together Sunday evening I couldn’t be more excited about the relationships we started to build that will only be strengthened in the coming weeks, months, and even years. I couldn’t agree more with the words Jordan wrote Monday:
Here’s a community genuinely trying to figure out how to live lives in the way of this Jewish rabbi whose words often sound more like a Buddhist monk than the type of Christians you see on CNN or Fox News. A community continually checking whether it is following the words of Micah by acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly. A community who – though quite small – has taken this mission seriously and partnered with locals of diverse beliefs and backgrounds to create a safe space and an incredible community partnership through Earth House
As the representative and chief conversation partner of the Indianapolis Interfaith Conversation Network I warmly welcome you to a community of relationship, dialogue and peace. I also invite you to join our group on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
In the next few days I look forward to connecting with you through email and our social media channels. I’ll be sending out an invite and Facebook event later in the week to announce our first “official” conversation.
In the meantime please reach out to me individually if you have any thoughts, ideas, questions, or would like to grab coffee one-on-one. I’m always up for it.
I encourage you to share your enthusiasm for our group with others. #FF us on Twitter. Like our Facebook fan page. Repost links to our site through your sphere of influence.
Shalom. Salaam. Peace.
director, Indianapolis Interfaith Conversation Network
