The Minister's War 

When: Mon., April 16, 6:30 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

It's not surprising that Waitstill Hastings Sharp became a minister; he was, after all, a descendant of Thomas Hastings, who came to North America from England during the Puritans' Great Migration in the 1600s. What is surprising, though, is that instead of just building a church, Sharp and his wife Martha traveled to Prague in 1939 to help build a metaphorical bridge out for Jewish, Czech and French refugees fleeing the advancing Nazi German army. Tonight's free screening of The Minister's War, at 6:30 at CC's Armstrong Hall (14 E. Cache la Poudre St.,, details the Sharps' efforts. Emma Blaxter will speak afterward; she not only made the film, she's the Sharps' granddaughter. — Bryce Crawford
