ORIGINAL THINKERS STOWE: COMMUNITY

Join us for Original Thinkers Stowe: Community! This show will explore the critical role community plays in our lives and engage the audience in a conversation about how to build this life-giving resource. The films below tell stories from across the country with incredible examples of humanity, kindness, resilience and hope.

Featured Films:

The Tables (15 min)
A fun and fast look at the powerful connection between a pair of outdoor ping pong tables in the heart of New York City and the unlikely group of people they’ve brought together, from homeless people to investment bankers to gangbangers.
Screening followed by conversation with Wally Green (subj).

My Father’s House (22 min)
Pastor Marcel Narucki’s Lutheran church in Aurora, Colorado was slowly fading away as its parishioners aged and he knew he had to do something drastic. Along with his parishioners, he decided to shut down the church and reorient his sacred space into a center focusing on helping refugees coming to the USA from all over the world.
Screening followed by conversation with Pastor Narucki (subj).

Postman Jim (17 min)
For twenty years, Jim Looney worked at the post office in Telluride, Colorado, but the mail was only a small part of what he delivered to this small town before he retired.

Show Followed by Ping Pong After-Party ~ 9 p.m. at Alfie’s Wild Ride with Wally Green of The Tables.
Join us for opportunity to play pro- Wally Green and experience the community building seen in The Tables, through ping pong!
