Paul Ehrlich, Environment and Faith
Don't miss this opportunity to engage in interfaith dialog with Paul Ehrlich and local faith leaders. We've discussed one of Ehrlich's books, The Betrayal of Science and Reason, in RET book club. Unfortunately, unbelievers are once again excluded from the organization of the interfaith panel, but we should be very present during the audience participation part of the evening. We may care more than anyone for the environment, because we don't count on being rescued from bumbling into self-annihilation. Complete details:

What: Forum on "Faith, Family and Food: Interfaith Perspectives on the
When: Thursday, April 22, from 7-9.
Where: Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church

Come celebrate Earth Day by participating in an interfaith dialogue about
the environment. A panel of six local faith leaders will give their
perspectives on ecology and the human spirit. Dr. Paul Ehrlich, author and
environmental scientist, will give his response to these statements. The
panel will include leaders from the Jewish, Protestant, Catholic, Muslim,
Hindu and Pagan faith traditions. There will also be an opportunity for
those attending from other faiths to give their own perspectives on the
issue. The goal of this dialogue is to bring a higher ecological awareness
to Knoxville's faith communities.

The event is sponsored by the University of Tennessee in cooperation with
the National Conference for Community and Justice, the East Tennessee
Interfaith Alliance, the Knoxville Interfaith Ecology Group, the Narrow
Ridge Earth Literacy Center, the Eco-Church ministry of the
Justice-Peace-Integrity of Creation.
