Dear Kasey -
What if there was a simple solution that could help balance our climate, replenish our freshwater supplies, and feed the world? That solution is right under our feet.
Registration is now open to view this year’s featured film, Kiss the Ground, as part of your events for Faith Climate Action Week’s theme of “Sacred Ground: Cultivating Connections Between our Faith, our Food, and the Climate” (April 16 – 25).
Register to view the film here.
Kiss the Ground is a new film how about how regenerating the world’s soils has the potential to rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies. This film explains why transitioning to regenerative agriculture could be key in rehabilitating the planet, while simultaneously invigorating a new sense of hope and inspiration in viewers.
Watch the trailer and register to view the film here.
Thanks to a special arrangement with Kiss the Ground and Ro*co films, IPL will offer a free online viewing period for home viewing from April 10 through April 26. All viewers must register with IPL.
Once you register you will receive a link-to-view for three different versions—the full-length film (84 minutes), a grower version (45 minutes), and an educational version for schools (45 minutes.)
Please share the link to register. (not the “link to view”) That way we can get an approximate count of viewers to THANK Kiss the Ground and Ro*co films for this fabulous opportunity.
Download the free screening kit that includes faith-based discussion questions on the film page, and host a film discussion with your congregation.
DVDS of Kiss the Ground are still available.
Wednesday, April 21 at 11am Pacific/2pm Eastern IPL will also host a webinar “Sacred Ground, a Message of Hope.” We’ll have a conversation with Kiss the Ground filmmaker, Josh Tickell, and Faith in Place’s Statewide Outreach Director, Veronica Kyle, on what congregations can do to be part of the solution to food justice and climate justice. When you register to view the film, you will also receive the Zoom link to join the webinar.
Contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I hope you can join us for this exciting film!
Rev. Susan Hendershot
