St. Mark's Church Hosts Free Screening Of "Disruption" Climate Change Film

Friday, September 5, 2014

St. Marks Church is hosting a free screening of "Disruption" this Sunday at 7 p.

m. EDT. The church is located at 701 Mississippi Avenue, 37402. The film is being screened nationwide, leading up to the People's Climate March which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 21 in New York City.

 

The community is invited to this free screening of "Disruption" to learn more about climate change and how it affects us all. Following the screening will be conversations and discussions about the effects of climate change.

 

Carl Greene, St. Mark's Minister and A2O Co-Founder says, "It is vital to look beyond politics, fiscal issues, and religion to respond spiritually to deep, often ignored social issues of our time, modeling the scriptural ideal, 'to love our neighbor.' It is our sacred duty to speak up for those who can't speak for themselves and to be engaged in the issues of our city and world."

 

Missy Crutchfield, Gandhi's Be Magazine Editor-in-Chief and Gandhi Global Center for Peace Co-Founder and CEO says, "While Gandhi's Be Magazine and Gandhi Global Center for Peace are focused globally, it's important to understand climate change is an environmental issue, but it's also a social justice issue which impacts us everywhere. We are proud to be working with St. Mark's Church on being part of this national film screening event."
