Event Details

You are invited to a special screening of the new documentary film, Seventh-Gay Adventists: A film about faith on the margins. This film follows the stories of three gay and lesbian Adventists as they struggle to be true to themselves and their faith. This intersection of faith and sexuality is at the core of many political, religious, and family conversations today, and this film offers viewers the opportunity to experience the spiritual journey of a gay person of faith. This film isn't about changing anyone's beliefs; it's just about listening to a demographic that is talked about and at but seldom with in our church. 

This screening will be held at the Power House Theatre at 111 North 6th Ave. in Walla Walla, WA at 7 PM.

Although this is a topic that is often highly charged in any church, this film's approach to simply share stories is being affirmed by thought leaders in the Adventist church and the film community. Here are a few endorsements:

  • "Whatever one's position regarding homosexuals and the church may be, this film is worth seeing because it candidly probes issues with real human faces and stories." - Dr. Roy Gane, professor, Andrews Seminary
  • "The film is superb--a poignant and profound experience beyond any I've seen on the subject." - Chris Blake, author and professor, Union College
  • "The movie, which simply tells stories rather than taking an advocacy stance, is powerful. It can, I believe, do much to make Adventists more compassionate in this controversial area of lifestyle." - Dr. William Johnsson, retired editor The Adventist Review
  • "It is a movie every Seventh-day Adventist ought to see." Steve Moran, delegate to the 2010 Atlanta GC session
  • "It's a very powerful film. Gentle in its way. Only tree stumps could get through the film without tears or sobs; yet it ends with joy." - Dr. Charles Scriven, president of Kettering College of Medical Arts

There will be a discussion following the film, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts in this conversation.
