Published on Oct 2nd, 2015 by wpd-office | 0

At the 2016 District Conference one of our keynote speakers will be Sister Lucy Slinger, a Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration based out of La Crosse, Wisconsin and an ecological advocate. The website for her ministry is:

She has asked that the Church of the Brethren in Western Plains be collectively intentional about watching some videos to prepare us for her ministry next summer. I encourage your churches, small groups, youth groups, peer groups, community groups, etc., to find the time to set aside and watch and discuss the following videos.

  • Suzuki Speaks (David Suzuki)
  • I AM (Tom Shadyac)
  • Journey of the Universe (Brian Thomas Swimme & Mary Evelyn Tucker)
  • After Conference she has suggested watching, Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community (Old dog documentaries)

Most of these videos are available either used, on or, or can be ordered new quite reasonably. I also have copies of each. Please contact the District office if you would like to borrow one. Thank you!
