Most of us have had “a-ha” moments when we realize that the parents and institutions that shaped us are far from perfect.

This Thursday’s speaker, Cara Jones is no exception. In fact, after being raised as part of the Unification Church (the “Moonies Cult”) and participating in a mass marriage within that community at the age of 20, Cara has had to ask harder questions of her parents and institutions than most.

Cara captured her experience in a compelling documentary entitled Blessed Child, and she will speak about her journey to break free from the movement at the risk of losing her family and the challenges of walking a separate path from the people we love.
