Cool It - A New Movie On the Environment From a Different Perspective

Sounds very interesting. This movie, from the preview below, seems to take a unique view of the current issues we have in our environment. As Catholics, we are called to be good stewards of the gifts God has given us, including the environment. The Catechism states in paragraph 339:
"Each of the various creatures, willed in its own being, reflects in its own way a ray of God's infinite wisdom and goodness. Man must therefore respect the particular goodness of every creature, to avoid any disordered use of things which would be in contempt of the Creator and would bring disastrous consequences for human beings and their environment."
The following message was sent to me by Sarah at the Maximus Group, who will be screening the movie in select cities soon, including Dallas and Houston on Nov 11:
Cool It is a bold, new approach to looking at the environmental issue that everyone is talking about. The film explores real solutions to our world’s environmental concerns and considers the fact that saving the planet is really about saving its people.

For Catholics, its exactly what the Church’s social teaching is all about – stewardship of one another. It looks at important issues such as poverty, world hunger, access to education, clean drinking water, as well as demonstrating how careful solutions to the climate change problems can save the planet.

The film comes out Nov 19th but there are a few special ADVANCE screenings and we have several free tickets available.

Please pass this along to others in your area who would be passionate about the role of stewardship to people and planet.
