Luncheon Book Discussion Group: Blessed are the Consumers, Climate Change and the Practice of Restraint by Sallie McFague
February 5 and February 19, 2014
"Given our twin planetary crises of climate change and unjust financial distribution, what is needed is not more information but the will to move from belief to action, from denial to profound change at both personal and public levels," states McFague in her latest book, Blessed are the Consumers, Climate Change and the Practice of Restraint. McFague is one of the leading Christian theologians on climate change and the environment. Join us as we explore McFague's argument that restraint is the only possible path forward for a world bent on consumption and overuse.
