Details: A member of the Sisters of Saint Joseph, Sister Elizabeth will address “Is God’s Charity Broad Enough for Bears?” on Sunday, October 4, at 2:30 p.m. as part of the fall season of the Maryknoll Speakers Series at the Maryknoll Mission Center at 55 Ryder Road in Ossining. Presented by the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, the series is free and open to the public. Reservations are requested and can be made by email (MaryknollSpeakersSeries@maryknoll.org), or by calling 914-941-7636 extension 2445. Additional information and directions can be found at www.maryknollsociety.org . The topic question is from American naturalist John Muir. He came upon a dead bear in the woods and scorned those whose religious beliefs reserve heaven for only people. With growing concern for the environment and the issues addressed by Pope Francis,Sister Elizabeth probes the meaning of creation and links the care for plants and animals with faith’s passion for the living God.
