FINDING DORY

The underwater world Pixar creates will enchant you. The creatures she encounters include a sea turtle, an octopus, a whale shark, a common loon and sea lions. Of course she meets up with clownfish Marvin (Albert Brooks) and his son Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and they experience many adventures together. 

Dory learns a lot on her courageous quest and so do we: asking for and receiving help, taking risks and persevering, for example. Join us for popcorn during, discussion after. Run time 97 min.; rated PG.

First Friday Films

We hope you enjoy our First Friday Film series as another venue to explore spirituality.  Over the course of the year, our “Film Committee” will be offering a variety of different links for your reading pleasure.

The Spirituality & Practice link will take you off the Peace website to an essay on Befriending Films. Thanks to Elana O’Loskey for her creativity and First Friday Film opportunities.
