Summer Movie Series #2: Cowspiracy

August 17, 2017

City Grace church members watched and discussed the documentary "Cowspiracy" as the second of three summer film series gatherings on July 22nd.

"Cowspiracy" explores global warming and sustainbility through the production and consumption of meat, particularly of beef.

While the documentary's arguments were compelling and left an impact on the members, several people thought that it was a bit dramatic. They also shared a healthy skepticism of the statistics presented in the film.

"It was kind of what I expected," said Jonathan Poch, who usually attends Trinity Grace Church and at the screening with friends. "A little exaggerated, which was silly, but I feel like without some fact checking I'm not too inclined to believe their flashy graphs and stuff."

After the screening, co-host Jeri Kwek presented some discussion questions surrounding the movie's focus on sustainable mass food production, as well as what the Gospel has to say about mindful consumption.

Overall, it was another successful film screening at the Kweks' apartment.

"Regarding the film series, I'm glad that City Grace as a whole is so interested in learning about how we can be involved in addressing social issues," said Nicole Shu, a City Grace member. "I think it's a fun way for us to explore potential callings as well as build the church community."
