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."

Attorney For Bobby Stone Hits Berke, Fletcher For Commenting On Pending Case

The attorney for Bobby Stone on Wednesday said it was "fundamentally wrong" for Mayor Andy Berke and Police Chief Fred Fletcher to comment on the case in which Mr. Stone is charged with domestic assault against his wife, Berke advisor Lacie Stone. Attorney Lee Davis said the comments were unfair and "a disservice to the court." Mayor Berke denied any inappropriate contact ... (click for more)

Case Handled Like Any Other? - And Response

It is interesting that Chief Fletcher would deem the handling of the Mayor's encounter as typical or normal. Is the Chief asking the public to believe that all misdemeanor domestic violence arrests include a 4-hour taped interrogation, and delayed reporting after a visit to the Chief’s house. Of course, we believe that Chief Fletcher. April Eidson * * *  I ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Christian Schools Bully, Too

Earlier this week, after I shared a story about bullying written by a very brave mother, it opened a floodgate of emails from parents and students who have been forced to endure such madness in our elementary, junior and senior high schools. Discipline is the No. 1 problem in our schools. Because of it, or because of a lack of it, no wonder our children cannot achieve all that ... (click for more)
