Necessary Care to Inhabit the Earth: Theological Reflections from the Global South with Leonardo Boff

October 6 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Leondaro Boff

Necessary Care to Inhabit the Earth:
Theological Reflections from the Global South

It is with great joy that we invite you to participate in the celebrations for the 35th anniversary of the Hispanic-Latinx Center. October 6th will be a historic milestone for the Garrett community, as we will be honored to virtually welcome one of the great theologians of our time, Leonardo Boff.

Recognized worldwide as one of the leading liberation theologians, Boff has expanded his work since the 1980s, delving into ecological issues as extensions of liberation theology. As a tireless activist for the poor and excluded, he argues that we need to hear not only the cry of the oppressed, but also the cry of the Earth–both are in need of deliverance.

The planetary crisis that weighs on the overexploited Mother Earth and the weakening of democratic structures in many nations, demand from us a reflection about viable paths that make possible a new way of living in kinship. This must be based on the values ​​of justice and equity, love and kindness, wisdom and respect for all beings that inhabit our planet. It is precisely on these themes that Boff will reflect, inviting us to think about the care needed to inhabit this common house.

The lecture will take place online and is free to attend. For community members in the Evanston/Chicago area, you are invited to join us for a watch party on campus (location TBA) and then for a time of lunch conversation following the lecture. Lunch will be provided.

You can learn more about Leonardo Boff at his website: https://leonardoboff.org/.
