America's Fascination and Trust in Violence:
A Lecture by Rev. Dr. James E. Atwood

Sunday, October 4 at 3 PM
Shortly after Jim moved to Springfield, VA in 1974 to be a pastor at the Grace Presbyterian Church, a charter member of the church was shot and killed by a teenager who went to the local bowling alley complaining that he had no money. His friend reached in his jacket and gave him a Saturday Night Special saying, "Here, go get yourself some money. When you get some, give me 20 bucks and you can keep the gun." For the next 40 years Jim has worked in gun violence prevention. He is currently a member of the Board of The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and in 2012 published America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose. Last year he was awarded The Peace Seeker of the year by The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship at the General Assembly of the PCUSA.

fluteMovie: The Magic Flute (2006)
Sunday, October 11 at 2 PM
Part of the epoch-making release of Mozart's complete operas on film, Pierre Audi's production of this blithe fable suggests an operatic Garden of Eden, enhanced by the primary-coloured, story-book designs of Karel Appel. The tale of two young men undergoing a rite of passage to win their perfect spouse inspired Mozart's most tuneful yet sublime score - superbly brought to life by Riccardo Muti and a distinguished cast of international soloists.
