CANTERBURY CINEMA

A Christmas Memory  – 1966 100m

“A Christmas Memory” is the classic memoir of Truman Capote’s childhood in rural Alabama. The seven-year-old Buddy (Donnie Melvin) and his “friend” Sook (Geraldine Page) a distant, eccentric, elderly cousin prepare dozens of fruitcakes and mail them to people they admire.

The outside world barely intrudes on this portrayal of a lovely friendship. Young Melvin and the remarkable Miss Page (in her Emmy winning-performance) are unforgettable. The color photography is muted. Narrated by Truman Capote.

LECTIONARY CONVERSATION

 Wednesday, 1:30 pm

The lectionary group takes an in-depth look at the upcoming Sunday scriptures, including looking at the history and theology of a given passage. Needless to say, that makes listening to the sermon on Sunday a much more rewarding experience. This class isn’t sequential, so feel free to drop in on any Wednesday.

BIBLE STUDY

Thursday, 10 am

Reading the Good Book Well: Not Your Grandmother’s Bible Study! Someone has said the Bible is an “R-rated” book, intended for mature audiences. This will be a six week Bible study, designed to illustrate key insights from READING THE GOOD BOOK WELL, wri en by my great friend, Jerry Camery- Hogga . The goal is to enable participants to interpret biblical passages with greater interest and insight, and to increase their appetite for being “addressed” by scripture itself. It will be an interactive study, so bring your sense of humor and a curious mind. Come, even if you missed the first one in September.
