080613 Sanbornton Church Film Series features Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet (185)

SANBORNTON — The Sanbornton Congregational Church – UCC, in partnership with the Sanbornton Town Library, is sponsoring a Film Series held on the first Wednesday of every month at the library. Show time will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the second floor of the library.

The seventh film, to be shown on August 7, will be "Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet" ( 2002-120 minute documentary).

This is the story of a seventh century prophet who changed world history in 23 years, and continues to shape the lives of more than 1.2 billion people. The film creates a detailed and intimate portrait of Muhammad, the man and the prophet.

It takes viewers not only to ancient Middle Eastern sites where Muhammad's story unfolded, but into the homes, mosques and workplaces of some of America's seven million Muslims to discover the many ways in which they follow Muhammad's example.

The enlightening documentary is a well-researched reminder that Islam is about peace, love and the acceptance of other people's beliefs - the same tenets as those in Christianity and Judaism.
