Description

A New Film Looks at Animals, Food, and Faith


7.2 billion people on planet earth identify as religious. Add to that the many “spiritual, but not religious” folks and that’s a lot of men and women, almost all of them eating God’s other creatures.


Filmmaker Thomas Wade Jackson, winner of a Student Academy Award for his short film, Slow Dancin’ Down the Aisles of the QuikCheck, took note of this. He had gone vegan after learning in a progressive Protestant church about a loving God, tolerance for all people, and the oneness of all life. But even the people teaching him these principles were eating bacon and eggs at Sunday brunch. This led Thomas to set out on a quest across America, to the UN Climate Conference in Marrakech, and through the Indian subcontinent asking the question, “How can people on a spiritual or religious path expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, regardless of species, while making choices in alignment with this value?”


The result is the new feature-length documentary, A Prayer for Compassion. Featuring representatives from almost every spiritual tradition, this film calls on people of faith and spiritual seekers of every stripe to come together to bring about a world in which “The wolf will live with the lamb...the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them...” (Isaiah 11:6).


A showing of A Prayer for Compassion will be held on September 29th from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Crescent Hill Baptist Church at 2800 Frankfort Avenue, Louisville,KY. 40206. It will include a question and answer session with the filmmaker.
