We are pleased to invite you to the second annual Building Green Bridges workshop for faith-based organizations/congregations interested in starting or enhancing an environmental sustainability program at your place of worship. We feel that stewardship of our Earth and all its natural resources is a significant part of the religious values revered in many faiths. Let's all come together and work on these important goals. Nourishing Hope in an Age of Climate Change: The Challenge of Laudato Si' Laudato Si' is the encyclical letter recently written by Pope Francis where he gives a clarion call to each of us to wake up, face the reality of climate change, and work together for the sake of the future of the human race. Sr. Patricia Benson, OP, PhD, is a retired Associate Professor of Spirituality and is deeply committed to care for Creation. Climate Change & You: An Environmental Awareness Presentation Gerald Hasspacher, MM, BS, is a well known presenter on environmental issues. An active member of the Southeast Michigan Group of the Sierra Club, he serves on their Executive Committee. Jerry likes to lead by example and is Chairman of the 12th Annual Green Cruise. He is also Co-leader/organizer of the Suburban Critical Mass Bicycle Rides and is busy working with many other local organizations. Pathways to Sustainability: The Greening of US Faith Communities Cybelle Shattuck is a PhD candidate at U of M School of Natural Resources and Environment. She has served on the Board of Directors of the Michigan Chapter of Interfaith Power & Light. Her objective is to encourage efforts that foster more resilient human and natural communities through “faith in action.” Her presentation will describe sustainability initiatives, their positive impact on the environment, while at the same time saving money and inspiring people to work together. An overview of Environmental Legislation will be given by a representative from the office of Senator Debbie Stabenow. Registration (before March 15th) is $10. Before April 1st is $15.
