This is the final service and message in our October Movie Classics Series. We have been focusing on what it means to be “called”. The story and movie for this week is Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird”.
Atticus Finch was called upon to do something he had hoped he would never have to do: defend a black man accused of taking advantage of a white girl. In the story, set in the deep south during the Great Depression, attorney Finch tries to convince a prejudiced jury of the innocence of a Negro.
How do those of us who are privileged respond to the call to name and dismantle racism in our time?
