Living the Questions Educational Series:
“Climate Change: ProFuture Faith—The Prodigal Species Comes Home” with the Rev. Michael Dowd
Having “squandered our inheritance on profligate living” (from the parable of the prodigal son), we are a prodigal species. Industrial civilization and our insatiable appetites have us hurtling toward irreversible consequences – not in some distant future, but right now. The good news is it’s not too late. At the intersection of science, spirituality, and sustainability is a deep love of life and a passion for our posterity – a ProFuture Faith. Join eco-theologian, author, and TEDx speaker, Rev. Michael Dowd in a dynamic DVD and internet-based discussion course that bridges the gap between head and heart, science and faith. Participants will be guided on a journey that accepts what is inevitable, avoids what is futile, and be inspired to attend to what is urgent. Come home to reality. Embrace a ProFuture Faith! (From Living the Questions description of the course.) David will lead this interesting and dynamic course. The cost is $20 for the whole course (8 sessions in the 6 weeks of Lent), which begins Wednesday, March 4th at 7 pm; we’ll gather in the Fairview Room.
Please let Lois or David know of your intention to attend; bring a friend… or two.
