A forum to discuss local activities that fall under the heading of “Ecology and Spirituality” is scheduled for 6:30 to 8 p.m. tonight (Sept. 25) at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 310 Broadway St. in Eau Claire.
The Eco-Spirituality Work Group of JONAH (Joining Our Neighbors Advancing Hope) will report on its two-year study of Laudato Si, Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment and human ecology. That study was aimed at understanding the lessons outlined in the Pope’s encyclical and discussing ways to put them into practice.
The forum is open to the public. Further information is available from Paul Savides by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 715-875-4203.
Members of the work group will share insights gleaned from their two-year study. Also on the agenda will be a discussion of the best ways to disseminate information to local faith groups as well as to the general public.
JONAH is a faith-based Chippewa Valley group concerned with social justice issues. The organization says its goals include working with people, agencies and organizations to make local communities healthier, safer and more equitable places to live and work.
