July 6th Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence (Documentary)
This film was talked about by Rev. Adam Hamilton during our study on the Lord’s Prayer.
Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence is one of the most inspirational stories you will ever hear. For 25 years, Bobbi Jo Reed has rescued thousands of addicts. But before she could help others, Bobbi Jo needed to help herself. This true-life story takes an honest look into the world of alcoholism and addiction and provides keys to long term recovery in Kansas City’s most dangerous neighborhood. After a middle- class upbringing, Bobbi Jo turned to drinking and drugs at a young age. Soon, her life spiraled out of control. Addiction led to abuse, prostitution, and homelessness. When she hit rock bottom, Bobbi Jo had a spiritual awakening. With newfound strength, Bobbi Jo was lifted out of a personal hell. That strength gave her the courage to return to the streets to help others. Using the testimony of her dark past as a ‘blueprint of hope’, Bobbi Jo Reed reflects on her transformation. How she was saved. Why she was chosen. And why more than 8,000 souls now call her, “Mom.”

In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford), legendary manager of the Brooklyn Dodg- ers, defies major league baseball’s notorious color barrier by signing Jackie Robin- son (Chadwick Boseman) to the team.

Facing open racism from all sides, Robinson demonstrates true courage and admirable restraint by not react- ing in kind and lets his undeniable talent silence the critics for him.
