As people of faith, regardless of our religion, we are called to be stewards of God’s creation. What does that involve? With the upcoming Encyclical by Pope Francis on caring for creation, this is a timely issue.

The evening begins with a presentation by Dr. Greenway from an open Christian perspective that focuses upon vital aspects of spirituality shared by Jewish, Buddhist, Islamic, Hindu and other great faith traditions. There will be ample time for questions and discussions about how we can take personal action.

This is a stop on Compassionate San Antonio‘s Pilgrimage of Compassion.
