 “The Reformer” movie will be shown at the First Mennonite Church of Christian in Moundridge. There is no charge and all are welcome. No reservations are necessary. 

*A film about Ulrich Zwingli, a priest in the Reformed Grossmunster Church that opened scripture to the common man. The film is seen through the eyes of Zwingli’s wife, Anna.  Zwingli is shown demanding that what is in the Bible should be taken seriously.  Zwingli was an urban reformer who worked hard for the poor, the sick, the refugees who also was tied closely with the traditions of the Reformed church.  This 90 minute movie doesn’t flinch from the harsher circumstances including the split between Zwingli and the Anabaptists, the continuation of obligatory church membership, compulsory belief and how the state dealt with Anabaptists. They took on Zwingli’s statement: “To be a Christian does not mean chattering about Christ, but rather to lead a life as Christ lived.”  Anna is caught between the doctrines of the Catholic Church and what she reads in Scripture.
