We will offer an update on the Synod on the Amazon, watch the video-documentary, The Amazon: The End of Infinity, and discuss possible action for the future. The documentary is of the Religion, Science and the Environment Symposium (2006), led by the Ecumenical Patriarch of the Christian Orthodox Church. It examines the ecological reality in the Amazon basin, the global impact of deforestation and proposes solutions to preserve the forest. It brings together representatives of the indigenous peoples of Amazonia, western religious leaders, scientists, environmentalists and policy-makers.

This event will be livestreamed. Contact Mary Beth Lamb at for the link.
