Dwelling On Hell:
A contemplative look at an important topic
October 26, 2019 This event has been cancelled
Everyone believes something about Hell…
…some of us firmly—but few of us have taken the time to examine where those beliefs come from, the unacknowledged role they play in our lives, and what our beliefs about hell reveal about how we view God, ourselves, and others. Throughout the day, we will explore these three questions with the hope that we will gain a greater understanding of ourselves, our faith, and the God to whom we entrust our lives.
DATE/TIME: Saturday, October 26, 2019. We begin at 10:00 am and finish at 3:00 pm.
LOCATION: Anglican Parish of Christ Church, Calgary, 3602 8 St SW.
COST: $50 (includes lunch)

Endorsements for Kevin’s Documentary Hellbound
I hope that Christians – as individuals and as whole church communities – will watch this movie. Feel free to go in expecting not to be persuaded. But watch it. It is those who are probably least inclined to watch such a movie who need to see it most urgently. As the movie emphasizes, if your viewpoint cannot withstand a close examination and encounter with alternative viewpoints, then you should not be treating it as though it is the obvious truth.
From the HUFFINGTON POST:
“Challenging” and “memorable” are words that come to mind when describing “Hellbound?” I’m going to call it a “stretch” film. It is a brave and refreshing documentary capable of lasting impact. It is one of those mind-shift films that shakes loose a bolt or two in the mechanics of our thoughts and opens a path to critical thinking that opposes the “we do what our preachers tell us is right” mindset that many have adopted.
Author Documentary Filmmaker and Presenter:
Kevin Miller is an award-winning writer, filmmaker, and educator, perhaps best known for his feature-length documentary “Hellbound?” For the past 22 years Kevin has applied his craft to a wide range of projects, including feature films, documentaries, and fiction and non-fiction books. He has also taught creative writing across Canada and the US as well as in the UK and Australia. Originally from Foam Lake, SK, Kevin now makes his home in Kimberley, BC, with his wife and four children.
