Film Screenings: The Gospel of Healing

October 16th and 18th, 2012

Philly Faith in Action is sponsoring two

screenings of The Gospel of Healing, directed and produced by Paul V. Grant. 

The Gospel of Healing: Volume I: Churches Respond to HIV/AIDS, directed and produced by Paul Grant, follows five faith-based programs’ efforts to end the AIDS epidemic in African American communities. The film highlights the exemplary efforts of churches and their community partners around the country in the fight against HIV/AIDS, including efforts to promote and normalize HIV testing and treatment, and to care compassionately for people living with HIV/AIDS.

The film looks critically at how churches and faith institutions can respond to the health needs of African Americans. Explaining his motivation for producing the film, Grant commented that rather focus further discussion on the challenges associated with addressing HIV/AIDS in faith settings, he wanted to highlight what real people are doing to fight AIDS in the African American community. The Gospel of Healing provides a new, positive outlook on how faith communities can respond to the AIDS epidemic.

Noting that the film profiles “African Americans talking to African Americans in a language they understand. In the language of the church,” Grant believes The Gospel of Healing can be a resource to help jumpstart conversations with churches about HIV/AIDS.

Grant acknowledges that each church has a different starting point for responding to the AIDS epidemic. However, the conversation can start with simple steps to break the silence about HIV/AIDS, such as passing around a collection plate once a month to raise funds for important HIV/AIDS projects. While noting that each church is different, he believes that they all have the power to improve the lives of their parishioners and communities.

While Grant’s film examines health issues through the HIV lens, he believes this approach can be used for other diseases that disproportionately affect African Americans, such as cancer, diabetes and hypertension.

Producer Paul Grant’s interest in faith and health can be traced back to his childhood. Grant’s father was a Baptist Pastor from South Carolina. When Paul was young, his father was diagnosed with a chronic heart condition. Believing his faith would heal his heart condition, for a brief period, he forewent medication and didn’t change his diet. It weakened his health and caused permanent heart damage.  He passed away two weeks before his 65th birthday from conditions related to congestive heart failure.  ”For him, faith alone was the fountain of youth,” Grant says.

Paul’s father’s spirit is always with him. Now that he’s profiled the efforts of many churches in promoting health and wellness, Paul reflects, “How would I explain thisissue to my father? What impact would it have had on him if he had seen churchesdoing this kind of work?”

The Gospel of Healing is Grant’s second documentary film about churches and the AIDS epidemic. Grant’s 2004 documentary, called Tangy’s Song!, examines the personal history of an African American gospel singer who contracts HIV and subsequently loses her husband and child to AIDS.

The Gospel of Healing has been critically acclaimed, and is already making a difference in African American community. Grant recounts: “I had one gentleman tell me, ‘I’m HIV positive, I left the church in the 80′s, and this film makes me want togo back.’ That was a great thing to hear.”

Join us for a screening of this extraordinary film, October 16th and October 18th. Both events will include panel discussion after the movie, featuring Gospel of Healing producer Paul Grant, local faith leaders, and local thought leaders.
