The Lutheran and Episcopal congregations of Canton invite you to our free screening of The Bold and the Sanctified written by comedian and radio producer, Sherri Lynn. The play explores the challenges faced by two churches, one of which is mostly white, the other of which is mostly Black, when they decide to merge due to financial troubles.
This musical explores issues of race and conflict between neighbors who want to gather harmoniously but don’t always see eye to eye. Can they make it work? The screening will be held on Thursday, July 21st from 2:00 to 5:00 with a fifteen minute intermission and a brief discussion afterward of unity and healing in churches.
The location is Grace Episcopal Church; 9 East Main Street; Canton, NY. Parking can be accessed from Church Street. Concessions will be freely available. For information about this event, contact us.
