September 23: “Faces of Incarceration” Have you ever met someone who spent time in prison? “Faces of Incarceration: Changing the Narrative” is the theme of the portrait exhibit on display at LELC through September. Six paintings are here from the original 50 that were shown at the Overture Center in July 2017. Brief stories give a glimpse into the portrait subjects’ road back to community. It is an invitation to see the larger picture of their journey. Pat Dillon curated the original exhibit and wrote the stories after interviewing the individuals in the paintings. The paintings were done by numerous Madison artists. Bring your questions and comments to the discussion with former jail chaplain John Mix, one of the artists, will speak, as will one of the featured portrait subjects.

LELC’s Racism History Film Series
September 29; 1:00 pm -- First Film
Lake Edge Lutheran Church will host a film series on the history of civil rights efforts and white supremacy in the US and the world. The showings are free, and childcare will be provided upon request. Please call the church, 222-7339, if you want to bring children, so we can arrange for child care. If no one answers, leave a message. We will call you back. If no one asks for child care, it will not be provided.
Our first film will be “A Son of Africa: the Slave Narrative of Olaudah Equiano.” This powerful BBC documentary reconstructs the first influential slave narrative, the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, which helped rouse the conscience of Europe and America against the shame of slavery.
This powerful BBC documentary reconstructs the first influential slave narrative, the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, which helped rouse the conscience of Europe and America against the shame of slavery.
Equiano’s story begins with his capture in West Africa in 1756 and recounts the horrors of the Middle Passage and everyday slave life on a Virginia Plantation. Slavery, he would observe, brutalizes not just the slaves but the masters and all of society. Resold to a British naval officer, Equiano learned to read and write, bought his freedom, married into English society and became a leading abolitionist. But it was his book, The Interesting Narration of the Life of Olaudah Equiano or Gustavus Vassa, the African, which vividly demonstrated the humanity of Africans as much as the inhumanity of slavery.
Walking the Bible: Book of Faith
Thursdays, September 20-27; October 4 & 11.
1:00 pm and 7:00 pm Each Day
The next Book of Faith Bible study will take us on a journey by land through the five books of Moses with a video that takes us from the birthplace of civilation (Mesopotamia) to Mt. Ararat to Harran to Egypt and then back to the Promised Land. It took the Israelites 40 years but we will do it in four sessions, led by Pastor Stephen.
When you read the Bible, have you ever wondered what the landscape looked like? How high are the mountains? What was the Dead Sea like when Lot’s wife looked back? Were is the Reed Sea that Moses crossed? Here is your opportunity to see what the land looks like from the comfort of our own adult learning room. Sign up on the bulletin board.
