Movie Night: Come Sunday - S

This month’s free Mystical Movie is Come Sunday.

Come Sunday is the true story of American minister Carlton Pearson (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who dared to challenge strict Pentecostal doctrine. In 1998, during the genocide taking place in Rwanda, Pearson reinterpreted both the Bible and his personal experience of a compassionate God to preach “The Gospel of Inclusion.” Called a heretic by the Pentecostal establishment, Pearson, who had a national presence, faced censure and loss of the community he'd built. Pearson's story was originally broadcast as an episode of Ira Glass’s This American Life on National Public Radio in 2005.
