Join us also for the panel discussion and community conversation that will follow the screening.

Deeply moving and laugh-out-loud funny, Mission: JOY is a documentary with unprecedented access to the unlikely friendship of two international icons who transcend religion: His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu. In their final joint mission, these self-described mischievous brothers give a master class in how to create joy in a world that was never easy for them. They offer neuroscience-backed wisdom to help each of us live with more joy, despite circumstances.

This screening is co-sponsored by the Bainbridge Island-North Kitsap Interfaith Council (which includes Faith Episcopal Church, Poulsbo, Grace Episcopal Church, Bainbridge Island, and St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Bainbridge Island.)

Special Guests: Dianne Andrews, Rector, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Port Townsend; Tan Nisabho, Buddhist Monk; Paul Rietmann, retired Episcopal Priest and author of "Jesus and Buddha Meet in Stillness"

Sponsors: Meaningful Movies Port Townsend, Episcopal Diocese of Olympia, St. Paul's Episcopal Church of Port Townsend, Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, QUUF Green Sanctuary Environmental Action Committee, QUUF Social and Environmental Justice Council.
