Last Sunday, in appreciation of the papal encyclical on the environment, local churches rang bells while other people of faith gathered in Rome for a global march. These efforts came under an umbrella called “One Earth! One Family!” and came from diverse people.
Members of Ridgefield-Crystal Lake Presbyterian Church (IL), a PCUSA certified Earth Care Congregation, gathered to ring their church bell Sunday.
Meanwhile, Presbyterian minister Neddy Astudillo and others gathered in Rome for a solidarity march. See photos of the One Earth One Family march.
