Presented by Dr. Ruth Bamberger
Sunday, February 19, 11:30 am
Cathedral member Dr. Ruth Bamberger, Emeritus Professor Political Science (Drury University) will present a program on the classic work, The Sand County Almanac. Written in 1946, Aldo Leopold urged us to formulate a Ten Commandments to define our proper relationship to the earth, just as we have a Ten Commandments given us by Moses outlining our relationship to God and neighbor. This forum will explore briefly how and why our culture became an exploiter of earth’s resources, and how Christian teaching can provide a roadmap to address current environmental issues.
