Now here comes the code Grounded in Grace Community is pleased to announce a special screening of The Moses Code, set for a unique synchronized worldwide opening on the weekend of April 5, 2008. The Moses Code is a powerful film bringing together some of the best-known spiritual leaders of our time to discuss the importance of service as a spiritual practice. Setting the stage for a new paradigm in filmmaking, this is the first time that a major spiritual film is being released in conjunction with a worldwide prayer vigil being held April 6. The Moses Code features dynamic spiritual teachers and bestselling authors who share their wisdom and insights about the true meaning of abundance. These speakers include Cheryl Richardson (Stand Up for Your Life), Iyanla Vanzant (One Day My Heart Just Opened Up), Sonia Choquette (Your Heart’s Desire), Gregg Braden (The God Code), Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations with God), James Van Praagh (The Ghost Whisperer), and Debbie Ford (Dark Side of the Light Chasers). Debbie Ford is also a co-producer of the film. The film also showcases real life examples of modern day philanthropy. Weaving throughout the film is the spiritual, uplifting music of Tina Melia and an appearance by Victor Wooten performing his new single “I Saw God the Other Day.” The film is a compelling reminder that each of us, indeed, has the power to change the world.

WSU’s Annual Holocaust Commemoration Explores “Art as a Mirror” Organizers of Weber State University’s 2008 Holocaust Commemoration have planned a series of presentations and discussions examining how art reflects, depicts and draws attention to the atrocities of genocide. This year’s commemoration, “Art as a Mirror,” will feature presentations by Sharon Siskin, an artist whose work touches on family, faith, multiculturalism, and environmental and social issues; and Donald Byrd, choreographer and director. Other events include a screening of the film “The Devil Came on Horseback,” and a discussion of the book “Maus,” led by WSU English professor and Honors Director Judy Elsley and visual arts professor Angelika Pagel. “We want to encourage students to reflect on the atrocities of the Nazi Holocaust, and at the same time remind them that genocide is still happening in the world today,” said Amanda Sowerby, co-chair of the 2008 Holocaust Commemoration Committee. The film “The Devil Came on Horseback,” exposes the tragedy occurring in Darfur, Sudan, where the current government is systematically executing a plan to rid the province of its black African citizens. The screening will be held April 2 at 7:00 p.m. in the Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater, with a student panel discussion afterward featuring members of the WSU STAND chapter-part of the Student AntiGenocide Coalition. On April 3 at 11:00 a.m., Siskin will present “Art as a Mirror: Explorations of Art, Identity and Culture,” in the Stewart Library Hetzel-Hoellein Room. In his lecture “Finding Inspiration in Lives Cut Short by the Holocaust,” Byrd will discuss how music composed by a Holocaust victim inspired him to create a contemporary dance that addresses oppression, prejudice and persecution in today’s world. Byrd’s presentation will be April 7 at 2:30 p.m. in the Kimball Visual Arts Center Room 143. The commemoration activities will conclude with a book discussion of “Maus: A Survivor’s Tale,” led by Elsley and Pagel. WSU Arts & Lectures purchased and donated 50 copies of Art Spiegelman’s graphic novel for students to read this spring. The discussion will be held April 9 at 2:30 p.m. in the Stewart Library HetzelHoellein Room All four presentations are free to the public. The commemoration committee also sponsored a research competition leading up to the April activities. The goal was to get students thinking about parallels between the Nazi Holocaust and genocides during the past 40 years. Students were encouraged to submit work in one of two categories—scholarly or creative research—that incorporated the theme of this year’s event. The winning entry will receive a $500 award and the runner-up will receive a $250 prize. Both research projects will be featured during the commemoration activities.
