Movie Night (remotely via Zoom): The Two Popes Thursday at 7pm

Dear Friends,

Based on the positive response to this idea on Sunday, I am delighted to invite you to a virtual Movie Night on Zoom, this Thursday at 7pm.  The movie we will discuss is the acclaimed The Two Popes, available on Netflix.  Please watch it on your own before we meet.

If there is enough interest, for the following week we will plan another movie – preferably one that our star film buff David Hoch is able to discuss with us.

(Apologies to those who may have trouble accessing The Two Popes which is only on Netflix; please bear with me as we try to find the most equitable way to do movie night given that we need to view from home, and not everyone has the same subscriptions or technology!)

To join the movie discussion, click on the link BELOW in this email a few minutes before 7 on Thursday and you will be taken right to Zoom.  You don’t need an account on Zoom to participate — it’s free for you, and easy.  Once you are on the Zoom website there will be some prompts to follow so it can “launch” but they are self-explanatory. It’s best to join the meeting from the link in this email, and leave a little time to get connected.  You can phone in and listen as well — just not have the video — but that is a toll call.

I look forward to a lively post-movie conversation to help sustain us during this time!  And we hope we can be back at the CC with David in the fairly-near future!

For those interested in joining us for worship on Sunday morning, look for a separate email this weekend.

BTW, here’s a link to a few notes about the movie: So, enjoy watching it at home in the next couple of days at a time convenient for you….and taking in all the things there will be to talk about!

An intimate story of one of the most dramatic transitions of power in the last 2,000 years. Frustrated with the direction of the church, Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Pryce) requests permission to retire in 2012 from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins). Instead, facing scandal and self-doubt, the introspective Pope Benedict summons his harshest critic and future successor to Rome to reveal a secret that would shake the foundations of the Catholic Church. Behind Vatican walls, a struggle commences between both tradition and progress, guilt and forgiveness, as these two very different men confront their pasts in order to find common ground and forge a future for a billion followers around the world. Inspired by true events.—Netflix
