The Congregation | PBS
The Congregation is an amazing documentary that has been playing on PBS. In addition to following Rev. Beth Stroud's experience of coming out as a gay United Methodist pastor, the film focuses on the well-meaning but beleaguered new senior pastor as he tries to lead a church that had the same pastor for thirty-something years. Can I just say that this thing plays almost like a horror flick to a graduating seminarian?? Despite my personal anxieties about congregational ministry, it is a transformative documentary and I recommend it highly.
