Information about the film:
THE WAY is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (played by Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage "The Way of St. James" to honour his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him. Through unexpected and often amusing experiences along "The Way," Tom discovers the difference between "the life we live and the life we choose.” The story is based on the well known Camino de Santiago pilgrimage.
International Holocaust Remembrance Day is on 27th January and commemorates the victims of the Holocaust. This year Churches Together is remembering the victims a couple of days early, on Sunday 25th January at the end of the week Frodsham Churches Praying Together.
Our speaker Eric Cohen is a retired primary school head teacher from Liverpool and is coming to talk about the story of his relatives in Vienna, and how they were affected by the Holocaust. Eric now visits schools and adults groups to give interesting and amusing talks on various aspects of Judaism. Even when speaking about the Holocaust to Year 6 children, Eric is able to reassure the school that he will `leave the children smiling` and I (Ruth Basden) have seen this to be true. At the end of one such afternoon the boy sitting next to me told me that he could have gone on listening for a long time.
Please join us at 4pm on Sunday January 25th at Frodsham Methodist Church for what should be a very interesting and thought- provoking occasion. The talk will be followed by a ‘Bring and Share’ tea
Wednesday 21st January, 7.30pm, S. Luke Roman Catholic Church: Ecumenical Service, preacher Rev'd. Michael Mills. Followed by refreshments
