God in The Movies: Lady Bird

This Sunday, we are going to be exploring the film "Lady Bird".  If you haven't seen the movie, I would encourage you to Redbox it or stream it before Sunday.  

(Two disclaimers: Even if you have never seen the movie, come to church anyway – you will still get a lot out of the message.  Second – while Sunday’s service will be rated “G,” this movie is rated “R." Please don’t watch this movie with your young kids!  :) )

Christine "Lady Bird" MacPherson is a high school senior from the "wrong side of the tracks." She longs for adventure, sophistication, and opportunity, but finds none of that in her Sacramento Catholic high school.

The movie follows the title character's senior year in high school, including her first romance, her participation in the school play, and most importantly, her applying for college.  It is a coming of age comedy. 

We will be exploring themes like acceptance, vulnerability, and the role of ritual in our faith and our relationships.
