They will inherit the earth

Children hold a banner at Sacred Heart Church, Camden, following a presentation by John Dear, peace activist and author, most recently of the book “They Will Inherit the Earth: Peace and Nonviolence in a Time of Climate Change.” The occasion was the ninth Annual Thomas Berry Lecture, sponsored by the Center for Environmental Transformation (CFET) on Sept. 15. The CFET, according to its website, “strives to sponsor local solutions to environmental challenges.”
