Nov. 5, 2012                            

BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— On Wednesday Nov. 7, at 11 a.m. in the Evelyn Chapel (1301 Park St.) the First Wednesday Chapel will cover “The Green Rule,” traditions from multiple faiths calling for ecological reverence and justice.

Chaplain Elyse Nelson Winger will speak about green wisdom drawing from various religious traditions. The talk will explore the ways in which caring for the earth is a transcending theme in different faith and non-faith traditions. Evelyn Ensemble and IWU’s saxophone quartet will provide the music. 

The “First Wednesday” Chapel is meant to offer community hours to learn about different spiritual traditions from multiple faiths. Different themes are explored through music, poetry, sacred texts and speakers’ reflection.

The theme Green Rule and service is inspired by resources developed by the interfaith organization "Faith and the Common Good."
