What have we learned since 1994 when “The Shawshank Redemption” was released? How does what we’ve learned about the history of incarceration, the experience of pandemic, the shifts and conflicts in our nation, the persistence of white supremacy, and all that we have learned about ourselves change our experience of the film’s message that “hope is a dangerous thing?” CW for film (not in the sermon/service) includes violence, rape, self-harm. Movie: The Shawshank Redemption
