RenewalClick for this Resource!
Renewal is a groundbreaking 90-minute documentary film about people of diverse faiths who have experienced a calling to become better stewards of the earth. It is the first film account of the growth of America’s religious-environmental movement. Eight grassroots stories — each set in a different faith tradition, each focused on a different environmental challenge — present people who have been motivated by faith to take action to build a more environmentally-just future, a more sustainable world.
