Virunga : Movie and Discussion

3:00pm - 5:30pm

Sat Jan 10, 2015

One of our community ministers, Rev. LoraKim Joyner, will host this movie and discussion about the literal fight to save the mountain gorillas of the Congo.  The New York Times reports that the movie showcases, "the best and the worst in human nature."  Conservation indeed compels us to reflect upon what it means to be human in a multispecies world, for we are both the cause and cure for what threatens this earth and her beings.   How are we to engage in the complexity of change given the hardships and challenges for conserving other species, including ourselves?  Let us gather together and find a way, the Conservationist's Way, where we save ourselves and the world.  This movie guides us along the path, as does LoraKim as she brings to the discussion over 28 years of front line conservation work in Central America. Bring movie snacks and beverages to share.
