Sol Center presents "Earth, Water, and Working for the Seventh Generation" October 6, 13, 20 & 27
The Sol Center, part of University Presbyterian Church located adjacent to Trinity University, is offering a unique examination of water issues entitled "Earth, Water, and Working for the Seventh Generation".
The presentations will take place from 7 to 9 pm each Tuesday in October. Tuition is $45 and the deadline for registration is September 29, 2009.
Presenters include Alyssa Burgin and Sisters Linda Gibler, Elise Garcia and Carol Coston and Dianne Monroe who will participate in a panel discussion for the October 6 session.
The second session, Water: Cosmic & Sacred Stories, on October 13 will be led by Sister Linda Gibler OP. She will trace the scientific and sacred stories of water from the Big Bang to today.
Alyssa Burgin will lead the October 20 session, "Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink”, which will address the irony of water shortage in a time of rising seas which will "inundate coastal communities by the year 2100. Under the same sky, we will face a situation in which the Chihuahua Desert will expand farther eastward through West Texas."
Sister Elise Garcia, OP and Sister Carol Coston will give a presentation on about a nearby ecological model of living more lightly (using less water) on Earth, Santuario Sisterfarm .
