Stephen Scharper is a wonderful speaker: profound – yet humorous. He does more than communicate. He illuminates his subject.
He is a masterful interpreter of Christian theology on the subject of climate change.
His commentaries in the Toronto Star have inspired more than one 4RG blog. Read “A Christmas Day Message for Grandparents everywhere. “
Any address by Stephen on the theology of climate change is well worth attending. Our supporters will wish to hear him deliver the 2016 Roy Ackers lecture at Regis College (100 Wellesley St W, corner of Wellesley and Queens Park Crescent). 4RG will be there.
Here is the official announcement:
Stephen Scharper, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology, U of T Mississauga and School of the Environment, will present the 2016 Royackers Lecture at Regis College on Wednesday, March 9 at 7:30 pm.
Stephen Scharper’s lecture, titled “Let Us Sing as We Go” will speak on Pope Francis, Laudato Si’, and the Quest for an Integral Ecology. Pope Francis’s melding of poverty and ecological integrity in his encyclical Laudato Si’ represents a critical emergence in Catholic social teaching. Yet, given his international pastoral presence and palpable humility, his search for an “integral ecology” represents something deeper and potentially more far-reaching. The larger implications of this quest will be explored in this presentation, including its impact on international political and moral approaches to climate change.
All events are free. All are welcome. Lecture and Symposium take place in St. Joseph Chapel, Regis College. Seating is limited. Please pre-register as requested below.
