Come and discuss the most common five lies that Christians tell about mental illness.

Chasing Ice 8/14

Sun, Aug 14 | 2:00pm | Heritage Room

Please join the Parkway Sustainability Seekers as we view Chasing Ice. This engaging and award-winning film follows photographer James Balog as he documents the world’s largest glaciers to see how they are evolving. As we follow Balog and his team, we are confronted with the dramatic changes glaciers are undergoing as climate change presents itself. Missouri Interfaith Power & Light will lead a brief discussion following the film to help us understand how people of faith can take action to help mitigate the effects of climate change and help preserve our one common home, Earth.
