Celebrate the new year with a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary “A Prayer for Compassion” on Jan. 11.
This film inspires and encourages those on a religious or spiritual path to expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, say organizers. The filmmaker travels around the world interviewing leaders in the traditions of Christianity; Judaism; Islam; Hinduism; Buddhism; Native American; and the spiritual world and discusses the contradictory nature of supporting the meat and dairy industries and living a life of compassion.
“There is a message here that if we join together in life for all, we may just be able to save this planet and ourselves, and relieve a huge amount of suffering in the process,” says the producer of the film.
This thought-provoking film encourages us to make choices in alignment with our religious and spiritual path and rededicate our lives to a kinder more sustainable world.
Screening is at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Jan. 11, at 5 p.m.
The screening is free and a delicious plant-based tasting will follow. Orcas Veg Fest is sponsoring the event. Call 206-661-3170 with questions.
