Cormaria Film Series: Disruption Invites Connection
September 27, 2023 @ 7:00 pm – May 15, 2024 @ 7:00 pm EDT
Artists and spiritual writers throughout millennia remind us of the fear and insecurity that come when life slices into our plans. We try to keep at bay that life holds no guarantees. We mistake faith in God with our need to feel secure, and we expect faith to give us peace and stability. When suffering, love, terror or joy disrupts our lives, with time we can turn to God, who through the disruption, reveals the Mystery of life through death. With time, we begin to let go of the tight control we have on life and stretch toward the other and The Other. Gradually, we die to isolation and realize anew that connection to others reveals God in our everyday lives. The decision to risk openness or to remain closed in upon ourselves is ours to make. Come, enjoy and reflect on our faith through the art of film.
