What happens when a city boy, with a pocket full of sermons, lands in a Scottish parish?
This year, in conjunction with Davidson’s Mains Parish Church, we are delighted to host a screening and discussion of the film GODSPEED – the story of a pastor whose desire to change the world grinds to a halt in a Scottish parish. After the film, we'll be joined by the writer of the film, Rev. Matt Canlis, who will guide us in a Q&A around the themes that arise from the film, and help us think about how to live out this parish mentality in very different places here in Scotland. More than just for church leaders, though, this film – guided by Matt's story, and with reflections from the likes of Eugene Peterson, N. T. Wright, Alan Torrance, and Granny Wallace – sets all of us on a pilgrimage to being known in our own backyard. Tickets are free, but registration is required.
WHERE: Davidson’s Mains Parish Church, 1 Quality Street, Edinburgh EH4 5BB
WHEN: Thursday 1 June 2017, 7:30 – 9:00pm (w/ teas & coffees served after)
