Event Details

The unexpected news of the Bluegrass Pipeline proposed a few months ago to carry Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) through central Kentucky and Ohio has begun to raise awareness in our region of the alarmingly high environmental and human risks resulting from the much-acclaimed national “Energy Independence” boom. From “fracking” in 26 states to tarsands mining in Canada’s boreal forests to massive petrochemical production along the Gulf coast (and all the high-volume, high-pressure pipelines needed to connect them all!), we are witnessing the development of a new generation of fossil fuel extraction infrastructures that can threaten the health of all the life systems, human and Earth, in their path. These infrastructures, sometimes referred to as unconventional oil and gas development, pose pollution risks to the air and water systems upon which all life on Earth depends.

This one-day event will draw upon the expertise and wisdom of three highly qualified and innovative regional leaders to help us explore what is at stake for creation, why we need to respond as people of faith in accord with our respective beliefs and practices, and how we might practically influence humanity’s future by learning and working together within and among our various faith communities.

The Sustainable Religious Lands Committee of the Festival of Faiths is proud to offer this event in partnership with the Center for Interfaith Relations and Bellarmine University’s Campus Ministry.

Lunch will be provided.


Registrations must be received by MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11.

Organizer

The Center for Interfaith Relations' Institute for Contemplative Practice

The Center for Interfaith Relations (CIR) is a nonsectarian 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting interfaith understanding and cooperation. The CIR believes that the Divine is present in all persons and their faith traditions and that the community is enriched when members of religious traditions exercise in their civic life the values upheld by their beliefs.

The Center's Institute for Contemplative Practice seeks to awaken interest in contemplative practice in order to promote the vision of a just and peaceful world, free of the illusion of separateness. visit www.instituteforcontemplativepractice.org.

Since 1995, the CIR has hosted the Festival of Faiths, which celebrates our community's religious diversity as an enlivening source of spiritual and cultural enrichment for all. This celebration gratefully acknowledges the opportunities for personal and community growth made possible in the current social and religious infrastructure of America, now the most religiously diverse nation on the planet.

The CIR has also hosted several forums that raise awareness about environmental concerns, meditative and contemplative practices, interfaith prayer services among others.

Many Faiths. One Heart. Common Action.
