- The Church of Christ Congregational, Goshen will present the film A Sense of Wonder as part of their Earth Film Series on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 7pm.
The evening will include a free soup supper in the Fellowship Room of the church at 6:30pm.The PBS produced program is an intimate reflection of author Rachel Carson’s life as she emerges as America’s most successful advocate for the natural world. Using many of Miss Carson’s own words, it depicts Carson in the final year of her life. Carson recounts with both humor and anger the attacks by the chemical industry, the government, and the press as she focuses to get her message to Congress and the American people.This story of Rachel Carson’s journey is told through her voice, portrayed by a actress Kaulani Lee who seems to become Rachel Carson herself. This moving film goes to the heart of Carson and her deep love of the natural world. The impact of the film is to inspire those viewing it to share her love and care for the planet and all the life it supports. Her commitment and tireless quest to save the beauty and resources available to all of us in nature is truly remarkable. This is a most inspiring and beloved testimony to the power of one person to affect major change in the world. Acted convincingly and movingly by Lee at Carson’s actual homes in Maine and Maryland, it provides extra insight into Rachel Carson as a person of deep commitment.We hope you will join us and bring a friend!
