The Lord's Prayer in cinemas
This is the text of a letter from the chair of PCN Britain, Adrian Alker, which was printed in the Guardian today and in the Church Times last week.
Church of England's director of communications is bewildered at the refusal of leading cinema chains to screen a film version of the Lords Prayer, saying that the "multi -generational cultural event offered by the release of Star Wars" was too good an opportunity to miss. A week after "Star Wars :The Force Awakens" is first screened, Christians celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace, a man who opposed the normalcy of the Roman Empire's practice of making war to bring peace at the expense of justice.
