Ecology Must be the Heart of Theology
The Sustainability Action Network invites the LJCC to attend a lecture by Rev. Michael Dowd on Friday, May 18 from 7:00 - 8:30pm at the Wakarusa Wetlands Discovery Center, 1365 N 1250 Rd. in Lawrence.  Michael Dowd promotes the Epic of Evolution as a sacred story, and Religious Naturalism as his own religious orientation. Dowd's presentation will focus on six points of agreement held in common by tens of millions of religious and non-religious people across the globe.  His writing has been featured in The New York Times, LA Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Newsweek, and Discover, and his book, "Thank God for Evolution", was endorsed by 6 Nobel Prize-winning scientists, noted skeptics, atheists, and leaders of many religions.  For an intro to Michael Dowd, visit -

Jewish Texts About
Study
 
We are called the People of the Book, and our devotion to study has not only separated us from other religions but facilitated a level of excellence and achievement virtually unknown to most other nations. What's the mitzvah, and why, and how does it play out in our lives?

The Mitzvah Committee requests
