Tuesday, Aug. 9, The film of Michael Pollen’s book called Botany of Desire.
The film shows how the one of the great conceits of human civilization is to put ourselves outside nature–constantly shaping and re-shaping the wild for our own purposes, people as subjects, plants as objects. This film takes the plants’ perspective of the world and restores human activity to its proper place in nature.

who was an Ecumenical Accompanier in Bethlehem with the World Council of Churches in Israel and Palestine. She will outline what a Just Peace would look like and what we can do.
