The Church of the Good Shepherd (Good Shepherd Catholic Church to most locals) is celebrating a Season of Creation from September 1-October 4 (the Feast of St. Francis) this year. In the leadup to that season, their Living Laudato Si study group
welcomes everyone —community members and parishioners— to join them in the Parish Hall for a viewing of Episode 1 of Earth: The Operators’ Manual (54 min.), followed by a discussion with Ken Davis, member of Good Shepherd and a climate scientist at Penn State.
The series is informative, watchable, hopeful, and even funny at times, and will give us lots to talk about. Official description below the trailer.
Earth: The Operators’ Manual. An operator’s manual helps keep your car or computer running at peak performance. Earth science can do the same for the planet. Join host Richard Alley – PSU professor, registered Republican, geologist, former oil company employee and expert on climate change and renewable energy — on a high definition trip around the globe to learn the story of Earth’s climate history and our relationship with fossil fuels. In this documentary, a diverse cast of Earth “operators” are proving that when the Earth’s bounty meets human ingenuity, there are many reasons to be optimistic about our energy future.
