Movie Night at OLC – “Pray the Devil Back to Hell”

June 13 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$25
Pray the Devil Back to Hell

Join us for an inspiring Movie Night at OLC.

Our film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell chronicles the remarkable story of the Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country.

Thousands of women – ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim – came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest outside of the Presidential Palace. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the country’s civil war. Their actions were a critical element in bringing about an agreement during the stalled peace talks.

A story of sacrifice, unity, and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back to Hell honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.

A basket supper to enjoy during the movie will be provided for each attendee!

This evening will be facilitated by Maria Decsy. She is a member of the retreat team here at OLC.
