Friday evening, June 5th in the All Saints Church Forum beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Don't miss the West Coast premiere screening of this important new documentary giving voice to the witness of the LGBT faithful in Africa. A Claiming the Blessing production, "Voices of Witness Africa" is being offered as a gift to the Anglican Communion -- and All Saints Church is proud to be one of the screening sites.

"As our Anglican Communion family continues to wrestle with issues of human sexuality "Voices of Witness Africa" offers an important response to those who dismiss the full inclusion of the LGBT baptized as a "western issue," said the Reverend Susan Russell. "Inclusion is not a western issue -- it is a gospel issue."

"And as the Episcopal Church prepares to gather for its 76th General Convention under the theme of "Ubuntu" it is critical that "I am because you are" extends not only to the neighbors across the street we are called to love as Jesus loved us, but to the neighbors across the the communion. All our neighbors: including LGBT Africans who have so courageously offered their stories and their witness that lives might be touched and hearts might be changed."

When will the DVD be available for purchase? The last one was amazing and the preview clips I saw were also impressive.
