3B – Laudato Si and the Call for a New Lifestyle (Jezreel) Pope Francis calls the earth our “Home.” And he beckons us to commit ourselves to a new way of living that measures the impact–positive and negative–of our lifestyle choices. We will explore the theme of simplicity and how our lives can be enriched by a more creation-mindful life.
