GCC invites public to see ‘October Baby’

GLASGOW — A local church is inviting the public to a free viewing on Sunday of “October Baby,” a movie that one pastor describes as full of lessons on the sanctity of life, forgiveness and compassion.

Richard Martin, pastor of Glenview Christian Church, and his wife were invited to watch the premiere of “October Baby” in Louisville.

The film tells the story of Hannah, a college freshman who learns she was adopted and her birth mother tried to abort her. The plot follows Hannah’s journey to find her birth mother, Martin explained.

While some expect the film to be focused on the issue of abortion, Martin said it is much more than that. Hannah’s journey encompasses compassion, forgiveness, reconciling relationships and finding peace, he said.

“It’s just a great film,” Martin said. “It’s a film that deals with life.”

“October Baby” teaches its viewers to choose to live life, and live it the right way, Martin said. Martin has three daughters and seven grandchildren, and the movie definitely tugged on his heartstrings, he said. Children should be raised in unconditional love, and Martin hopes the film sends that message, that more children in the world should know that love.

“That’s what our world needs,” Martin said. “We need kids that are cared for and loved and made to know they have a purpose in life.”
