Latino Leadership Circle to host "The Question of God"

The Latino Leadership Circle is hosting a series of relevant movies that will encourage discussion and reflection.Movies will follow group discussion on topics presented in the film. Everyone is welcomed but seating is limited. Please register ASAP.

The Question of God, explores in accessible and dramatic style issues that preoccupy all thinking people today: What is happiness? How do we find meaning and purpose in our lives? How do we reconcile conflicting claims of love and sexuality? How do we cope with the problem of suffering and the inevitability of death? Based on a popular Harvard course taught by Dr. Armand Nicholi, author of The Question of God, the movie illustrates the lives and insights of Sigmund Freud, a life-long critic of religious belief, and C.S. Lewis, a celebrated Oxford don, literary critic, and perhaps this century's most influential and popular proponent of faith based on reason.

For a recent interesting NY Times article entitled, "Defender of the Faith?" which argues that towards the end of Freud's life, he sees value in religion, click here.

I recommend this movie discussion for friends who struggle with belief in God and college students who, at best will confront an agnostic view of God in the classrooms.
