Film: The Great Warming: A Call to Action
Presented by: Steve Chase, Director of AUNE Advocacy for Social Justice and Sustainability Concentration

Global warming is not just a scientific issue, it also represents a profound moral and spiritual challenge. Will we rise to the Divine call to love God’s good earth and become good stewards of creation? Are there ethical resources and a distinct moral compass that communities of faith can bring to the movement for climate protection?

On the night of January 31, Antioch University New England is offering a special public showing of the award-winning documentary The Great Warming. Described by one reviewer as “the best film about global warming ever produced,” The Great Warming not only examines the evidence that human activities are provoking an unprecedented era of atmospheric warming and weather disruption, but it also showcases community-based initiatives aimed at reversing the trend toward permanent damage to our planet by highlighting the emerging voice of America’s faith communities on the issue of climate protection.

Filmed around the world, this wide-ranging, compelling film taps into the growing groundswell of public concern about climate change to present an emotional, accurate picture of the challenge facing God’s gracious gift of creation. It has also been endorsed by the National Council of Churches, the Evangelical Environmental Network, and the Coalition on Environment and Jewish Life.

We hope you will invite all the members of your faith community to attend this January 31, 7pm showing of one of the only global warming documentaries that explores faith-based, citizen action for climate protection.
