God's green earth: Leading environmentalists to speak

 How can Christianity help us understand green issues? Can our faith be a source of energy, helping us to tackle the enormous problems facing our world today? These are some of the questions Fr Sean McDonagh tackles in his new book 'The Greening of the Christian Millennium', which is being launched this Friday, 23 June at 5.30pm at the Friends Meeting House in Euston, (opposite Euston Station) London NW1. Former director of Friends of the Earth Jonathan Porritt will introduce the launch with a talk on 'Science, Society and the Sacred'. Jonathan is now director of Forum for the Future, which takes a positive, solutions-oriented approach to today's environmental problems. Fr Sean is a Columban priest who has worked for 20 years in the Philippines where he witnessed first hand the impact of tropical deforestation. He has written three previous books and many articles on environmental issues from a Christian perspective. His new book includes chapters on global warning, a Green Christology, nuclear power, ethics and genetic engineering, third world debt and suggestions for a Catholic response to the global environmental crisis. All are welcome to the event which is being organised by the Columban Justice and Peace Office. For more information call Ellen Teague on: 020 8954 6255.
