Sacred Places: Intersections of Religion and Ecology

Sacred Places: Intersections of Religion and Ecology August 23, 2018

This should be of interest to readers of my blog within driving distance of Butler University. As you’ll recall, last year I was involved in this series focused on the theme for the year of “Religion, Refugees, and Migration.” This year the series will be coordinated by my colleague Brent Hege. Here are more details, courtesy of our Center for Faith and Vocation:
