Six-part Lecture Series: Integral Ecology by Terrence Ehrman, C.S.C.
The Earth is our common home where we live in relationship with one another, the natural world, and God. We are not separated from the natural world but are integral participants in our ecosystems. To address the social and ecological crises of our day, Pope Francis has called for a "broader vision of reality" that demands an "integral ecology." In this six-part lecture series, we will explore how to live out this vision within the Great Lakes watershed.
