EEN Film Festival 2022: VIRGINIA'S CALLING
The Evangelical Environmental Network is proud to present our second annual Flourishing Future Film Festival featuring VIRGINIA'S CALLING, a documentary by Barry Lyons and Linda Nieman.
This festival is designed to guide creation care advocates in grappling with the inspiring work of land defenders, moving past divisive rhetoric of the environmental movement, and creating a vision for how we can take action for a flourishing future. Partnering with filmmakers, our goal is to explore themes of stewardship, spirituality, environmental justice and the biblical foundation for creation care.
After the screening of the film, we will have a live panel and Q&A with the protagonist of the film, Virginia herself, as well as producers Barry and Linda.
A homeschooling mom’s picture-perfect life is shattered when her home floods. Just as she hits rock-bottom, an unlikely spiritual guide appears. A warm, intimate portrait of a strong and determined woman of faith, VIRGINIA'S CALLING offers a sensitive look into the human effects of climate change on an evangelical family that never thought climate change would affect them. Virginia’s new purpose has far-reaching effects.
Hoping to inspire fellow evangelicals to embrace creation care, Virginia shares, in her own words, this dramatic story of faith tested to the breaking point.
How can she hold on to evangelical beliefs and conservative convictions while working with people who don’t share them? God leads Virginia into challenging situations. Yet He also shows her the way, giving her the courage to step out of her comfort zone to do His will in the fullness of Christian love.
