POPE’S ENVIRONMENTAL ENCYCLICAL: Discussion Sunday
In June of this year Pope Francis released an encyclical titled “Laudato Si: Our Common Home,” in which he addressed the modern environmental crisis in searching detail. It is a dense, thought provoking work, available in full here: http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/encyclicals/documents/papa-francesco_20150524_enciclica-laudato-si.html. Jim Armstrong will provide a brief summary on a handout for those who are not familiar with it; we will discuss how our own 7th Principle might be in conversation with the Pope’s ideas.

The concept of the “spirit animal” is an old and powerful one. How is our spirituality expressed by observing, pondering about, and connecting with animals, and how does our particular appreciation for certain species reflect our own personal beliefs and values? Come prepared to share about a creature for whom you have a special connection.
