Emmanuel Night at the Movies


 Join us for Emmanuel movie night on Friday, January 30, 6:30pm, for the Oscar-nominated comedy "Life with Father"! Set in 1885, it's the witty, heartwarming story of a successful Wall Street stockbroker, his doting wife and their four red-haired sons.  Absolutely certain that he alone is correct in all decisions, Clarence Day Senior is forever running afoul of his beloved wife Vinnie's scatterbrained logic, his boys' funny forays into growing up, visiting relatives, and terrified servants. When a conversation reveals that he has never been baptized, Clarence laughs the matter off-but Vinnie is determined that he will be baptized whether he likes it or not! Comic battle-lines are drawn, and the result is a hilariously amusing portrait of Victorian manners and attitudes about everything from religion to the place of women in the world.  As always, admission is free, refreshments are served, and the company is delightful!

A group of us had the opportunity to celebrate Epiphany at Epiphany (our sister church in East Los Angeles). Here we were singing "We are Marching in the Light of Christ" along with the congregation of Epiphany. What a gift to be part of their wonderful community!
