You all know that our charity has a good working relationship with Fr Chryssavgis and Fred Krueger in the US. I have today received this preview of the Orthodox Film ‘The Face of God’ which is to receive world release in September 2019. Please see the information below which includes the website for more information and video clips. We are asked to share to all, Orthodox and non-Orthodox friends, for this message concerns us all.
THE FACE OF GOD is a major new documentary film about God and nature, faith and climate change, and the experience of Orthodox communities around the world facing and experiencing changes in their lives now. Featuring interviews with His Eminence Archbishop Demetrius of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and with George E. Demacopoulos and Aristotle Papanikolaou, and many others, the film covers the whole spectrum of responses in the Orthodox Church to the story of our times in the face of a changing climate.
This film is about beauty, ecology, theology, sanctity, our relationship to the natural world, love, asceticism, and always it is about the radiant living icon of the face of God in creation.
The Face of God film is produced by the Orthodox Fellowship of the Transfiguration, a pan-Orthodox organization endorsed by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America, under the spiritual direction of Fr. John Chryssavgis, Fr Chistopher Bender, Fred Kruger, and other sitting board members of the OFT. His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios Geron of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America”All levels of church life must care for creation.” The film will showcase our most important Church voices, highest ranking hierarchs, scientists, politicians, lay leaders, theologians, and communities around the world, and it will gather the witness of the whole Church on the defining issue of our time. Filled with beautiful and truthful footage and captivating interviews, inspiring patristic and matristic wisdom, The Face of God will be a testimony to the world concerning our relationship to creation; it will be challenging, hopeful, helpful, and when released, it will be accompanied by an educational campaign.
This is a unique project in modern Orthodox history, and our times need just such a bold venture. We are making this film with love, prayer, personal sacrifice, and with integrity.
