Come Sunday, is a film that documents the journey of a Black Baptist minister to Unitarian Universalism. Minister Carlton Pearson struggles with Baptist theology, especially the doctrine that holds humans will burn in hell, unless they accept Christ as their savior. Labeled a heretic by his denomination and his church, Rev. Pearson sets out on a spiritual odyssey that takes him to All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he currently preaches.

Come Sunday is based on an adaptation of one of the most difficult, challenging, and unexpected phases and stages of my ministry life and spiritual growth,” Rev. Pearson said. “I have expanded even beyond what is portrayed in the film and will continue to expand and evolve as long as I live.”

From director Joshua Marston, the film stars Academy Award-nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lakeith Stanfield, Jason Segel, Condola Rashad, and Martin Sheen.

The Black Lives Matter Committee is showing the film free to members and friends of UCWC. Because of its direct interest to our UU community, it is not being advertised to the public. Members and friends are welcome to bring outside friends who they believe would be interested, however.
