Pope Francis recently released a highly anticipated papal encyclical, Laudato Si', on the subject of climate change. This study guide is intended to assist individuals or small groups to read and digest Laudato Si’. It follows the natural divisions of the letter and recommends scriptural and worship resources to create a seven part study designed to encourage fruitful conversation. It is our hope that these conversations will lead to a surge of faithful action on the part of Christians from all traditions to care for our common home.

This November we will return to the Columbus, Georgia to take a stand for justice and accountability. Torture survivors, union workers, religious communities, musicians, puppetistas, students, migrants, veterans and others from across the country will speak out against violence and militarization. We will commemorate the martyrs, march to Stewart Detention Center, teach and learn from each other in the Columbus Convention Center, and celebrate resistance at the gates of Fort Benning, Georgia. Fort Benning is also home to the notorious School of the Americas (SOA/ WHINSEC) and has become a focal point of resistance to empire and militarization.
