‘Pray the Devil’ at CVUMC
A screening of “Pray the Devil Back to Hell” is being held at the Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church on Friday. Jan. 13. The film chronicles the remarkable story of the courageous Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country.
Thousands of women — ordinary mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters, both Christian and Muslim — came together to pray for peace and then staged a silent protest outside of the presidential palace. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the country’s civil war. Their actions were a critical element in bringing about a agreement during the stalled peace talks.
A story of sacrifice, unity and transcendence, Pray the Devil Back to Hell honors the strength and perseverance of the women of Liberia. Inspiring, uplifting, and most of all motivating, it is a compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.

The viewing will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church, 2700 Montrose Ave., Montrose.
This will be a free event.
