Jaye White runs a program for the United Methodist Church geared to encouraging congregations to reach out to military families. As part of this outreach program, she showed Chaplains Under Fire at the Haymount United Methodist Church in Fayetteville, NC. Here is what she reports:
We had about 35 people show up for CUF at our screening in February. There were two active duty chaplains in attendance and three retired chaplains. All of the response was positive. One woman was upset that anyone would take issue with having chaplains in the service. One of the retired chaplains pointed out that chaplains are to assure that everyone has religious freedom. Obviously there have been problems at times, but this documentary addresses the issues fairly.
We are showing the film this Thursday, March 8 at Southern Pines United Methodist Church in Southern Pines, NC at 6:30 pm. FREE Everyone welcome!
Pass the word along to anyone you know in the Southern Pines area — thanks!
