Reel Reflections: Just Mercy Thursday, January 21 - Movie at 6:30 pm*/Discussion at 8:30 pm, all via Zoom
“Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done,” Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. The truth of this statement is what allows us to go before the Lord, for if God only saw in us our worst deeds, there would be no hope for redemption. While this principle may be true for our faith, it is often absent in our justice system. Fortunately, there are people in the world like Bryan Stevenson who represent the marginalized in their fight for equal justice under the law.
Just Mercy is based on the true story of Walter McMillian, a man condemned to die for a murder he did not commit. In this powerful movie, we follow attorney Bryan Stevenson (played by Michael B. Jordan), founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, in his quest to bring justice for Walter (played by Jamie Foxx) and others like him who have been unfairly condemned. If you joined us for the book discussion, you will not want to miss this film. Please join us, via Zoom, for our first ever virtual Reel Reflections on Thursday, January 21.
