Please join Pastor Betsy and friends from Prince of Peace for this play and discussion. Meet at church Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 6:15 to carpool or meet at First Lutheran Church, 1555 40th Ave NE in Columbia Heights, at 7 p.m.

Please RSVP to Pastor Betsy at betsy@poproseville.org, so we know how many to plan for!This dramatic retelling will bring to life the heroic and difficult choices Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer undertook to join the assassination attempt on Hitler. It will also explore the role of the German Lutheran Churches in WWII and the birth of the Confessing Church using a combination of re-enactments and historical newsreels.

This play explores a serious topic, but it is age appropriate for youth and adults. Following the performance, Lori Brandt Hale, Associate Professor of Religion Augsburg University, and Vice-President, International Bonhoeffer Society, will lead a  a 20-minute youth friendly Q & A.
