Eco-Film & Panel Discussion Maryland Presbyterian Churchchange everything logo

“This Changes Everything” is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction best seller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there.

7:00pm Meet & Greet (Light Refreshments)
7:30pm Viewing: “This Changes Everything”
9:00pm Panel Discussion

Sponsored by Towson, Maryland, Babcock and Brown Memorial Woodbrook Presbyterian Churches.

Saturday - April 22

Christians, Bible & Ecological Crisis
First Presbyterian Church of Howard County  

Join us at this forum for lively discussion on "Christians,the Bible and the Ecological Crisis" with Patricia K. Tull, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary and the 2017 Scholar in residence.  Prof. Tull will discuss the scripture of ancient Jews and Christians who were keenly aware of their absolute dependence on, and interdependence with, the other elements of the natural world. These ancient peple developed a rich theology of creation, which contemporary people of faith are now reclaiming. In the process, we discover not only joy in a powerful world beyond the human, but urgency to do all we can to assure its thriving and our own. Although many people find environmental problems either too remote or too frightening to face, the actions needed to change our course are both practical and doable.  Pre-registration required.
