DISCLAIMER: Although great lengths are made to NOT present artwork and films in poor taste, there is considerable variance on what may be deemed appropriate. Some prefer literal interpretations of bible scenes, others more abstract. While viewing the selections in this section, you may resonate more with some than others. Use your own judgement in showing/discussing content with others. A depiction of a bible event or scene might be liked by one participant, but disliked by another. In both cases, the art/film is likely to trigger personal experiences. Therefore,  it may be helpful to also be familiar with the variety of discussion questions related to each week’s readings.
