CARBONDALE— WSIU Public Broadcasting, the public media arm of SIUC, and Carbondale Public Library will host a free Community Cinema screening of the film “Love Free or Die” at 2:30 p.m. June 29 at the library, 405 W. Main St.
The Sundance Award-winning documentary looks at church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity – and Gene Robinson’s struggle to dispel the notion that God’s love has limits. Robinson is the first openly gay person to be elected bishop in the high church traditions of Christianity. His consecration in 2003 in the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire caused an international stir and threatened schism in the worldwide Anglican Communion.
The Rev. Katherine Bryant Graves, pastor of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), will lead a discussion after the film.
