Faith at the Movies

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer holds a virtual discussion with a few of the organizers of the second annual Faith and Film Festival, which is set for Jan. 28-29, 2021. Registration is $20 and the deadline to register is Jan. 15. Geared toward people interested in film and theology, the festival serves as an opportunity for participants to explore Christian themes in movies and develop eyes to see film in new ways. The festival is being held as on online event in 2021 because of the pandemic.

During this episode, Meyer talks with Dr. Travis Scholl, managing editor of Seminary Publications; Erika Bennett, director of Continuing Education; Rev. Jake Wampfler, associate pastor of Shepherd of the Desert in Scottsdale, Ariz.; and Heather Choate Davis, an L.A.-based author. “This a time of great revitalization for the church,” Meyer says. “The Lord is bringing good out of this [pandemic]. The church is really being revitalized in many, many ways. The Faith and Film Festival is testimony to the Spirit working to engage the faith of Jesus, the person of Jesus the way our culture is today.”
