We know the bad news. The climate is changing. But the good news is: Churches are becoming green. In the historic encyclical on climate change, Pope Francis calls for dialog, interfaith co-operation to heal the earth. His repudiation of globalization and market fundamentalism is unambiguous. "The idea of infinite or unlimited growth, that proves so attractive to economists, financiers, and experts in technology, is based on the lie that there is an infinite supply of the earth's goods..."

Paul Rockwell, columnist for the Montclarion (Bay Area News Group), will deliver an address, followed by discussion on deep ecology and the implications of the Pope's message. The "Green Friday" program takes place at the Sierra Club (2530 San Pablo Ave. Berkeley, October 9th. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the program runs from 7:30 to 9:30. Refreshments are served.
