The LINE – Film Screening & Discussion

The Line movie on poverty


United Methodist Churches in the Greater Lafayette area are focusing on hunger and poverty throughout 2013.


2013-01-27 The Line 011 (2)As a part of this initiative, there was a screening of the short Sojourner’s documentary The Line. The 30-minute film uncovers the emerging and entrenched faces of poverty in our country.

Following the screening of the movie, there was a open discussion concerning poverty and hunger in the Tippecanoe County area featuring panelists (our very own) Joe Micon, Executive Director of Lafayette Urban Ministry, and Kier Crites, Director of Community Relations, Food Finders Food Bank, Inc. The discussion was moderated by Tim Burchill, Senior Pastor, St. Andrew United Methodist Church; and participants included among others Cathy Potter, LUM Board of Directors’ President; Trisha Sembroski, LUM Board of Directors’ Treasurer; Clarinda Crawford, Pastor, Congress Street United Methodist Church; Linda Dolby, LUM Board of Directors’ member; and Susan Brouillette, LUM Director of Healthy Families and Sustainable Communities.


Thank you to the United Methodist Churches of Greater Lafayette for sponsoring such an important program and for including LUM in the conversation. Special thanks to St. Andrew United Methodist Church for being such gracious hosts.
