Redeemer Summer Reading

Redeemer Summer Reading

Laudato Si': On the Care of our Common Home

Pope Francis' letter to humanity, Laudato Si: On the Care of Our Common Home , has caught the attention of Christians and non Christians alike.  Francis understands that transforming our relationship with creation, and in particular with our planet, Earth, must now be the top priority of all people.

In the encyclical Francis says,  Sister Earth "cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her."

This encyclical is written in an engaging, accessible style.  It is great for individual reading but even better for a discussion group.  Reading and discussing the encyclical in a group is exactly what is called for because throughout the letter, there are calls to dialogue.

Laudato Si
Professor Stephen Scharper

The engaging speaker Stephen Scharper will help us launch Redeemer Summer Reading on Wednesday, June 15 at 7 PM.  Stephen Scharper is a professor with the School of the Environment at the University of Toronto, the author of “For Earth’s Sake: Towards a Compassionate Ecology” and a columnist with the Toronto Star.  His research and teaching are in the areas of environmental ethics, worldviews and ecology, as well as nature and the city.  AND he is a truly re-igniting, inspiring speaker!

Please join in what promises to be a fascinating and rewarding summer dialogue.  Individual discussion groups will be established at the launch on June 15.  Please register for the launch online or by calling the church office at 416-922-4948.
