• AN EVENING WITH FR. JOHN DEAR
    Sharing and Signing New Book
     
    They Will Inherit the Earth:
    Peace and Nonviolence
    in a Time of Climate Change
     
    Thursday, March 1, 7 pm
    St. Timothy Lutheran Church

    Longtime activist, priest, author and Nobel Peace Prize nominee, John Dear will introduce his new book, “They Will Inherit the Earth.” Connecting the way of active nonviolence with Climate Change, Creation Care and Solidarity, he cites Jesus’ third Beatitude as the basis for his meditation: “Blessed are the meek, they will inherit the earth.” Thomas Merton said “meekness” was the biblical word for “nonviolence” (in the Gandhi/King sense). The book invites deeper nonviolence, active solidarity with Mother Earth, suffering humanity, and a new culture of peace and nonviolence.

    Books will be available for purchase and for signing
    Light refreshments

    What is the Paris Pledge?

    Take the Paris Pledge and commit to reducing your carbon pollution by 50% by the year 2030 and to be carbon neutral by 2050. Together, we can make a real difference.

    When you take the pledge, Interfaith Power & Light will provide you with helpful resources and tools so you can reach (and maybe even exceed) these commitments.

    At the end of 2015, leaders from across the world met in Paris to negotiate an agreement on how climate change can be slowed. As people of faith, Interfaith Power & Light communities from across the United States brought to the table examples of what is possible by taking the Paris Pledge. By living as examples, we will show our world leaders that we believe change is not only possible, but happening now.

    Will you join us? Sign the Paris Pledge and together we can show that a brighter future is within reach.
