Join us for this important screening. As found on the Sacred Land Films Project website, here is the official description of the film’s themes and content: “Ten years in the making, In the Light of Reverence explores American culture’s relationship to nature in three places considered sacred by native peoples: Devils Tower in Wyoming, the Colorado Plateau in the Southwest and Mount Shasta in California. Rich in minerals and beloved by recreational users, these ‘holy lands’ exert a spiritual gravity that pulls Native Americans into conflict with mining companies, New Age practitioners and rock climbers. Ironically, all sides see themselves as besieged.
This award-winning film documents the Lakota, Hopi and Winnemem Wintu efforts to protect their most sacred places. Their battles tell a new story of culture clashes in an ancient landscape.” In the Light of Reverence is “produced and Directed by Christopher McLeod. Co-Produced by Malinda Maynor. Written by Jessica Abbe. Edited by Will Parrinello. Narrated by Peter Coyote and Tantoo Cardinal. Educational Distributor: Bullfrog Films.” (https://sacredland.org/in-the-light-of-reverence/).

A primary theme that will be explored in this study is to engage the Ten Commandments not as a rigid set of to-do’s and not to-do’s. Rather, author Eugenia Anne Gamble invites folks to encounter the Commandments as a “‘love letter’ from God.” Across these three days, we will explore teaching strategies and theme development for groups to study Love Carved in Stone.
