ONE SERVICE

10:30 AM

Laudato Si' And Us

Rev. Clare Petersberger

In June, Pope Francis issued an Encyclical entitled, "Laudato Si'" which translates to "Be praised" or "Praise be to you" and is from the Canticle of the Sun by St. Francis of Assisi. Unlike many papal encyclicals which are addressed to Catholic Bishops, this one is addressed to every person on the planet. It's theme is care for creation. Also in June, the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly passed an Action of Immediate Witness entitled "Act For A Livable Climate."  Both invite us to reflect on our work both in and for the world---and how the two are interrelated. Labor Day weekend, a few weeks before the Pope's visit to the United States and a September 24 multi faith vigil for moral action on climate change at the Lincoln Memorial, seemed a good time to reflect on the theology and ethics of these two religious statements on care for creation.
