The Atlantic Institute recently enjoyed a special film screening of Love is a Verb, a moving documentary that examines the life of Fethullah Gulen and the Hizmet Movement. We would like to thank our hosts, First Baptist of Greenville, our guest speakers, and all those in attendance for a lovely afternoon.
Our guest speakers had firsthand experience with the Hizmet Movement as well as being affected by the current persecution of Turkish people. The insights they shared helped form the context that allowed the film to resonate on a deeper level with those in attendance. Being able to walk away from this screening with a greater understanding of the subject matter elevated the experience, and we are grateful for the opportunity to share this film and its story with our friends.
If you missed this screening, don’t worry! Love is a Verb will return to the Upstate soon! Check back at our website often for screenings.
