Presentation by Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker & John Grim
April 26, 2019
How do we respond to the challenges at this critical moment in Earth’s history? Guided by the work of Thomas Berry, Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim will present a pathway to a viable and hopeful future. As producers of the award winning film, “Journey of the Universe,” they will share how this epic story offers a vision for a shared future in which Earth and humans flourish. Indeed, it is possible for us to bring forth a mutually enhancing relationship with our planet to respond to the ecological and social challenges of our times.
