On Thursday, April 28, at 7:00 pm, the community is invited to join Yale Divinity School Dean Harold Attridge and Professors Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, coordinators of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale, for a discussion on religion and ecology at San Francisco’s Congregation Emanu-El.

Sponsored by the Yale Club of San Francisco, Congregation Emanu-El, Yale Divinity School, and Eli's Mishpacha, Yale's Jewish Alumni Group, the event will feature a panel discussion examining different religious perspectives and their relationships to environmental issues and concerns.

Yale University is a leading player in the burgeoning field of ecotheology. During Attridge’s tenure as dean, the unique joint degree program between the Divinity School and the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies was established, and several major conferences on the topic have been held on the Yale campus. Yale Divinity School’s Center for Faith and Culture is also home to the Christian-Muslim Reconciliation Project. Attridge is a New Testament scholar and is general editor of the revised edition of The HarperCollins Study Bible, 2006.

Tucker and Grim are members of an interdisciplinary team that just produced a book and movie, both titled Journey of the Universe, that draw together scientific discoveries in astronomy, geology, biology, ecology, and biodiversity with humanistic insights concerning the nature of the universe. They will play a clip from Journey of the Universe. (The SF premiere on April 30 has been sold out for months.)

As co-founders and coordinators of The Forum on Religion and Ecology, Tucker and Grim lead the largest international multi-religious project of its kind, dedicated to exploring religious worldviews, texts, and ethics in order to broaden understanding of
the complex nature of current environmental concerns. At Yale, Grim teaches courses in Native American and Indigenous Religions, World Religions, and Religion and Ecology. Tucker teaches in the joint MA program in religion and ecology. Her special area of study is Asian religions. Both studied world religions with renowned cultural historian Thomas Berry in graduate school and worked closely with him for some 30 years.

Please join us for a lively multi-faith conversation about the environment.
