Church to screen film 'Out in the Silence'ROCK TAVERN — The film "Out In the Silence" will be screened at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Rock Tavern on Friday, Feb. 17, 7 p.m.
The church is located at 9 Vance Road, Rock Tavern.
"Out in the Silence" follows the story of a small Pennsylvania town confronting a fire storm of controversy ignited by a same-sex wedding announcement and the brutal bullying of a gay teen. Critics have called it a gripping documentary that will challenge you to rethink your values and help close the gaps that divide our communities. “Out in the Silence” is more than a movie; it’s part of the movement for fairness, equality and human rights for LGBT people.
The film will be followed by a time for discussion. This event is sponsored by the Social Action Ministry of the UUCRT, whose endeavor is to "Nurture the Spirit and Help Heal Our World."
A $5 - $10 donation is requested, but no one will be turned away.
For further information, call Verne M. Bell, 845-569-8965.
Snow date: Friday, Feb. 24.
