Zoom: Cinema Divina – How is Love Moving in My Life Right Now?
With Marilyn Freeman
October 3, 2021
Loss comes in many forms—a job, a relationship, a home, physical and cognitive abilities, the death of a sister, brother, friend, spouse or parent…. With loss comes grief, and grieving is different for each of us but many arrive at the same question CS Lewis did in his book, A Grief Observed: “Meanwhile, where is God?” This October session kicks off the third Cinema Divina season at the Priory Spirituality Center with a cinematic meditation on grieving and this question: How is Love Moving in My Life Right Now? Marilyn will guide participants through a contemplative screening process with a short film made for this session. Participants will be invited into reverent silences, writing, sharing and spacious listening.
