WHO WILL BE THE NEXT GENERATION OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS?

DEC. 2 - 6:30 P.M. - DISCOVERY WORLD - FREE ADMISSION
~THE CALLING~

Milwaukee, WI -- (November 29, 2010) -- A new film from INDEPENDENT LENS provides a behind-the-scenes look at seven Evangelical Christians, Jews, Catholics and Muslims preparing to be become the nation's next generation of religious leaders. "The Calling" reveals young people balancing ancient truths and modern lives, the needs of family and community, and self and service. "The Calling" offers entertaining, often surprising stories on how faith is lived in a modern, largely secular world.

MPTV hosts a preview of the film and a discussion that is free and open to the public on Thursday, December 2, at Discovery World's Innovation Theatre, at 6:30 p.m. An open discussion follows with Fr. Tim Kitzke, pastoral team member at Three Holy Women, Old St. Mary, Saints Peter and Paul, and Our Lady of Divine Providence Catholic parishes; Jim Vining, associate pastor at Elmbrook Church; Rabbi Shari Shamah, Jewish family specialist at Harry and Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center, and Ameer Hamza, Hafiz and youth director in the Milwaukee Muslim community.

Discovery World is located at 500 N. Harbor Drive in Milwaukee. Parking in the Discovery World underground lot is $1.00 for cinema patrons only. Free street parking may be available.

"The Calling" will broadcast on MPTV 10.1 later in December. Part 1 airs 12/20, 8:00 p.m. and 12/22, 2:00 a.m.; Part 2 airs 12/21 8:00 p.m. and 12/23 2:00 a.m. For more information, contact Darlyne Haertlein, MPTV Supervisor/Outreach Services at 414-297-7518 or haertled@matc.edu.
