Film inspires, offers opportunities for action

A free showing of the film "58:" is being held at the Homer Theatre at 11 a.m. Oct. 20. A donation of non-perishable food items is suggested, but not required. In addition, a selection of new winter coats in sizes 2T-adult XL will be freely distributed as long as quantities last following the presentation at 12:45 p.m.

The name of the film comes from the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapter 58, which describes the "true fast." The film tells "the inspiring true story of the global Church in action," according to information provided about it online. From Ethopia to Britain, Kenya to India, Brazil to New York, 58: shows the depths of poverty and the actions of brave, determined faith.

In a review of the film, David Evans, U.S. president of Food for the Hungry, said, "Both astounding and stirring, this film ignites a passion for unprecedented action and paints an inspiring portrait of a Church on the move."
