Film Screening: More Than Walking (8/13)

Join us this Thursday (8/13), from 7:30-9:00 pm at 389 Norton Pkwy (a red house on the corner, follow the signs) for a screening of ECVer Jonathan Sigworth's just-completed documentary, More Than Walking. Afterwards there will be a Q&A session with Jonathan.

Some notes from Jonathan on the film:
People in wheelchairs are often fixed on the goal of walking again; but the film's point is that there are more important goals in life than just walking. In the movie he tells his story and the fascinating stories of four Indian quadriplegics. They are Riya, a 14-year-old injured in a diving accident at school; Rahul, 23, who was injured defending his uncle from a drunkard; Krishnan, 46, a resident at the military rehab center in Pune; and Navin, 38, who is starting a school for street children in Delhi.
If you can't make it this Thursday, there will be a second showing and Q&A on August 31, 7pm at The Space (295 Treadwell St. Hamden, CT 06517, www.thespace.tk). That will be a $10 ticket (this Thursday, of course, is free).

Jon is awesome and his testimony amazing! I'm so glad to see how he is using his experiences and to witness how God is using this for His glory and to reach out!

Looking forward to the screening!

The screening was amazing, and the discussions afterward very insightful. I encourage anyone who can to go to the official screening at The Space on the 31st!
