Synopsis

A Time for Burning
It says in the Bible, "Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." (James 1:22). This Academy Award-nominated documentary shows how difficult it can be to put that Christian injunction into practice. Filmed in 1966, a time of heightened black and white racial tensions in the United States, this program chronicles the debate, decision, and action by the white, middle-class congregation of the Augustana Lutheran Church in Omaha, NE, that attempted to bridge the barrier between themselves and the black community of the city. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
