Mary Evelyn TuckerCommunity Night

April 26, 2019
6:00-8:30 p.m.


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.


Speakers: Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim

As co-directors of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale, they have organized conferences throughout the world on religion and ecology and edited the ten volume series Religions and Ecology. Currently, they teach at Yale University. Mary Evelyn served on the drafting committee of the International Earth Charter. Together they authored “Thomas Berry: A Biography,” the story of one of the 20th century’s most prescient and profound thinkers, and the person who inspired the creation of the Earth & Spirit Center.
