“For They Know Not What They Do”
November 14, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Faith United Methodist Church, 2708 33rd Ave. NE, and Minnesota Reconciling Congregations invite you to a free viewing of “For They Know Not What They Do,” on Sunday, Nov. 14, 3 pm. The film is an exploration of the intersection of religion, sexual orientation and gender identity in America. It features four families of faith: one was encouraged by their evangelical church to put their son in conversion therapy; another Presbyterian family was shocked when their youngest boy came out to them as a transgender woman; another’s Puerto Rican Catholic tradition and culture greatly concerned their gay son; and another mixed race family’s child endured self-harm before coming to terms with their gender identity. Alongside these family stories of faith, rejection, validation, tragedy and triumph, the film weaves together unique perspectives from religious leaders. A 30-minute discussion will follow the 90-minute film. Face masks required and social distancing encouraged.
