Film examines Mormon faith

The Summerland Film Club is into its winter season once again.

Dear Editor,

The Summerland Film Club is into its winter season once again.  Our next showing is Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. in the Rosedale Room at our Legion. The documentary is titled The Mormons.

If you have ever wondered who they are and what their beliefs are, this is your opportunity to learn about it. This film has been sanctioned by the Mormon Church.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of Americans fastest-growing religions and, relative to its size, one of the richest. Church membership, now at 14 million and growing, has swept the globe. But, from the moment of its founding in 1830, the church has been controversial.

In the past several decades the Mormon Church has transformed itself from a fringe sect into a thriving religion that embraces mainstream American values; its members include prominent and powerful politicians, university presidents and corporate leaders.

Few know who the Mormons are, or who they claim to be, and their story is one of the great neglected American narratives.

Admission is by donation. For more details, please  visit summerlandfilms.ca.
