Spirituality and Your Connection to the Earth
Guest Speaker: Chara Armon, Ph.D Assistant Professor, Lawrence C. Gallen Teaching Faculty, Villanova University
Lay Leader: Allan Pallay
In recent decades humanity has gained increasing scientific awareness of our dependency on the Earth and the damage we have inflicted on our home planet. Simultaneously, we are reexamining the teachings of the world’s religions and discovering within them ancient recommendations to care for the created world. As we endeavor to address environmental problems and balance our religious and spiritual understandings with scientific realities, how can we most wisely interact with the natural world? What might it mean to live in a flourishing relationship with planet Earth? Note: Check out Chara Armon’s website at mutualflourishing.org to see why she is a speaker you won’t want to miss.
