***“Our Bigger Than Life Former Minister:
Remembering Rev. Donald Lothrop”*
*with Dean Stevens, Rev. David Carl Olson
and Karla Lothrop Wight Williams*

For 39 years of CCB’s enormous ministry to the multitudes in the 
mid-20th Century, at the helm was a remarkable leader named Donald 
Lothrop. Rev. David Carl Olson (also our former minister)  and Dean 
Stevens will engage in a conversation about Rev. Lothrop, fruit of 
endless hours in our archives, searching the enormous record of the 
correspondence, media clippings, sermons and writings of Donald Lothrop. 
We will hear a recording of Lothrop’s last sermon at CCB, in 1993. We 
will also be joined by Karla Lothrop Williams Wight, Donald Lothrop’s 
daughter, who grew up in this church, and has an inside perspective on 
CCB during those giddy and troubled days, World War II to Vietnam.

*Virtual Film Screening & Talkback on Wednesday, January 27,
at 7 p.m (EST)

with Director Cray Novick*
          Diving into the streets of Havana, we meet change-makers in 
Cuba today. Speaking to thought leaders in the U.S. and Cuba, history is 
made present as our characters trace their place in Cuban history to a 
trail of revolution and reform.  As social and economic freedoms expand, 
the search begins for reconciliation, solutions to inequality, and a 
collective Cuban dream.
           From the frontlines of standing Rock, to refugee cooperatives 
in Athens, Cray Novick is an award-winning documentary filmmaker telling 
intimate stories that highlight our shared humanity. Cray is best known 
for his work on the mini-series “Re-Evolution: The Cuban Dream.” In 
2018, he founded True Spectrum Media, a film, podcast, and XR studio 
based in Denver, CO.
