SAME GOD Peace Day Philly screening
September 22, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
A screening and discussion hosted by Ken Greiff and Hugh Taft-Morales of the Philadelphia Ethical Society. This event is a part of the Peace Day Philly series of events.
“I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims…. We worship the same God.” For this social media post, Dr. Larycia Hawkins, a (Black, female) professor, lost her job at Wheaton College, an evangelical Christian institution. How are race, theology, and Islamophobia intertwined in this story?
Explore this question in the documentary film, Same God, by Linda Midgett, a Wheaton graduate herself. In the cities where Same God has been shown it has drawn large crowds and provoked deep conversation. It is recommended to get to the Ethical Society early to assure a seat. There are no tickets and no set charge, but donations will be collected and split 50/50 with the Ethical Society and the filmmakers through the Auburn Seminary. The film runs 1 hour and 38 minutes, followed by a discussion session.
