The Whole Earth is a Living Icon of the Face of God – St. John of Damascus

March 3 @ 6:00 pm - April 7 @ 7:00 pm CST


The Face of God

Thursdays, Mar. 3 – Apr. 7 (except Mar. 17), 6 p.m. central, online

From the melting permafrost that threatens churches in Alaska to the wildfires that ravaged California this past year, to the U.S. South where hurricanes are becoming stronger and more deadly, communities around the globe are already feeling the rising impacts of global climate change. The Face of God is a film about God and nature, faith and climate change, and the experience of communities around the world facing and experiencing changes in their lives now. This is also a film about beauty, ecology, theology, sanctity, our relationship to the natural world, love, asceticism, and always it is about the radiant living icon of the face of God in creation. The film showcases important Christian voices, scientists, politicians, lay leaders, theologians, and communities around the world, and gathers the witness of the whole church on the defining issue of our time.

Join us online each week to view segments of the film and discuss them. Can’t make it every week? Join as you are able. Register on at: Contact Lisa Brenskelle at for more details.
