“Before the Flood” to be Screened

Mon, Feb 13 • 4:48 am

Congregation Beth El Sanctuary

On February 19 the Green Ministry Team will screen a portion of the Leonardo DiCaprio documentary, Before the Flood, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in the Beth El Sanctuary. 

This film is the result of a three-year journey DiCaprio made to “document the devastating impacts of climate change” and assess “humanity's ability to reverse what may be the most catastrophic problem mankind has ever faced.” Released last fall, DiCaprio said, “We cannot afford to have political leaders out there that do not believe in modern science or the scientific method or empirical truths.”  Today, the film’s message has taken on new urgency. 

The film will be followed by a discussion of the action we at First Congregational Church can take to mitigate the impact of climate change.
