The discussion will be centered around Ben Stein's recent movie "Expelled." The movie will be viewed for the first 3 weeks and will conclude with discussion the fourth week with an example of this freedom revolving around the "hot" topic of global warming. This discussion is geared toward adults but high school youth are strongly encouraged to come and join in.

You may see Jesus in the face of a child, or the smile of a teen, or the tears of a friend. You might understand the value of life through the rhythm of a breathing tube, or the unfolding of a walker, or the chatter of a toddler. Above all, your life will be given value through the means of grace—gifts from the God who created us, redeemed us, and continues to sanctify us. Come to the Source of Light—then go out and let it shine!‖ Karen Frohwein, Lutherans for Life of Iowa This “Life Quote” is from Lutherans for Life www.lutheransforlife.org
