Ecology & Theology

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd at 7pm by watching and discussing Saving Place, Saving Grace, a film about a Trappist monastery’s struggle for reformation of their home by embracing an intense sustainability initiative.  It’s a race against time to retain their home in rural Virginia on 1,200 acres along the Shenandoah River in Berryville.  Their humility and recognition of the divine in nature calls for a spiritual awakening that we all should deeply ponder.  This event is presented by the Care for Our Common Home Committee.  For more information, contact Carol Even at
