MUD is an inspiring documentary about a Tucson woman’s attempts to live a sustainable existence, focusing on a dwelling she created from mud and recycled materials and featuring interviews with other members of the Southwestern permaculture community.
On Sunday, September 30, from 3-6pm, members of First Christian Church and the general public are invited to attend a premiere showing of the documentary. A discussion in sustainability led by producer and star, Kay Sather, will follow. Samples of truly local foods will also be available.

Spiritual Growth Group, Wednesdays at 12pm
This small group will begin a new study based on the book Manna and Mercy: A Brief History of God’s Unfolding Promise to Mend the Entire Universe by Daniel Erlander on Wednesday, October 10 at 12:00pm in the Parlor. Manna & Mercy offers an unique entry into the scriptures through its retelling of the Bible and focus on God’s grace and never-ending love for humanity. Daniel Erlander describes this as a book about God—more specifically the God of the Bible who is present and active in human history and all creation. Using Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection as our guide, we journey through all of Scripture to reclaim its message of life, justice, and inclusion for all people.
