Environment and Faith Discussion on November 7

Next Saturday, November 7, 7:00-8:30 p.m., in Fellowship Hall, we will have an opportunity to hear from Father Jim Flynn, who has become a student of Pope Francis’ recent encyclical on the environment. Laudato Si (or Be Praised) is subtitled, On Care for our Common Home. It is a comprehensive, powerful appeal from Pope Francis that is addressed to “every person living on this planet” (again, all of us). It is also long… but, lucky us, Fr. Flynn has read it and studied it and created a PowerPoint presentation of the main points. Laudato Si makes the point that it is those who are living on the margins who suffer most from environmental degradation but that the changing climate has grave implications for all of us, including our children and our grandchildren.

Come be a part of the dialogue and discussion around perhaps the most important issue of our time.

Father Flynn is a retired priest living in Louisville. He is known for his work in social justice and for his courageous advocacy on behalf of those who are poor and marginalized in Central America.
