    "The Stones Cry Out" - screenings

    "The Stones Cry Out" screenings

    PIEN has arranged national screenings of the entertaining and powerful documentary, "The Stones Cry Out". The film explains that Christianity was born in Palestine 2,000 years ago, yet many are unaware Christians still live there. For over 60 years all Palestinians have suffered displacement, expulsion, & occupation and Palestinian Christians' voices have been drowned out in the turmoil. This is a chance to hear their story.

    The event is just days away for the Brunswick screening on 21st September, with another one in Bayswater on 19th October. We don't want you to miss out on this important film. In fact, it is so important that you should bring lots of other people along too. This is an important opportunity to let your friends and church members see and learn about life for Palestinian Christians.

    BRUNSWICK: 7:30pm, Thursday, 21st September. Bookings here (a pdf poster to this event available for download here)

    BAYSWATER: 7:30pm, Thursday, 19th October. Bookings here (a pdf poster to this event avilable for download here)

    If you need any more information, or if you have any trouble with these links, go to the PIEN website event page. We hope you can make it, this is a really important film. 

    Would you like to show this film in your town or church? Contact PIEN to discuss.

  • Thomas Merton

    MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

     From "Through the Year with Thomas Merton"
