Affirmations Community Center will launch their Faith Initiative on Thursday, Jan. 12 from 7 – 9 p.m. with a screening of “Fences.” It’s the personal faith journey of Antonio David Garcia, the executive director of Affirmations, which culminated in his visit to Laramie, Wyoming, the site where Matthew Shepard was murdered. The movie will be the substance of a discussion and talk-back. A panel of faith leaders will participate including Catholic Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, Darlene Franklin, founding minister of Agape Spirit Life Ministries, Rev. Edwin Rowe (tenative) from Central United Methodist Church and special guests Linda Karle-Nelson and Tom Nelson with Fortunate Families.
Light refreshments will be provided. Affirmations is located at 290 West Nine Mile Road, Ferndale. For more information call 248-398-7105.
