In honor of Loving Day, we are screening An Act of Love. This gripping documentary follows Rev. Frank Schaefer as he was put on trial in the United Methodist Church for officiating his son's same sex wedding. The Schaefer family was pulled into a movement for LGBTQ equality in the nation's second largest protestant denomination. This follows Rev. Schaefer's journey from small town minister to outspoken advocate, as well as the ongoing debate in the United Methodist Church over LGBTQ inclusion. Film maker Scott Sheppard will join us for a discussion of the making of the documentary.
