Family Time - Movie&PopCorn - Amazing Grace

Tomorrow for our monthly  
Family Time meeting
we'll have a Movie&PopCorn evening.

As a perfect follow-up of the time we had at
the Budrio Walk of Peace last week,
we decided to watch the movie Amazing Grace,
about the campaign against slave trade in the British Empire, led by William Wilberforce.

The movie also recounts the experiences of John Newton, who played a major influence on Wilberforce and the abolition movement. The story of his conversion from his past as a crewman on a slave ship, inspired his writing of the well-known hymn.
