On Friday, April 29th Union Avenue Christian Church hosted a screening of the film Injustice Anywhere. This documentary was commissioned by the National Benevolent Association to gather and share the stories of local Disciples following the death of Michael Brown, and the resulting activity in and around Ferguson.
Rev. Dietra Wise Baker, pastor of Liberation Christian Church, served as the discussion leader after the film. Those gathered were given the opportunity to pose questions to the three separate panels of involved individuals - local activists, Disciples pastors, and community organizers.
The message to all when the question, "What can I do?" was asked: Follow the Jesus who pushed tables - not the one that makes you feel good, but the one that challenges.
The 50 minute video by local filmmaker Aziza Binti is now available for online streaming. More information, including the coordinating study guide, is also available here.
