Movies and Meaning Group "Doubt" - January 15

The January 15 movie this month will be "Doubt" starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep. It takes place during the period of Vatican II as the Catholic Church was experiencing various reforms. The film obviously addresses the issue of the place for doubt and certainty in our faith and spiritual growth. It's getting good reviews. Should be fun to discuss and explore afterwards. Go to http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081210/REVIEWS/812109991 for a full-length review.

JOIN US THIS MONTH FOR Doubt, Rated PG-13, 104 minutes, $10.00, Lloyd Mall 8 (inside the mall), 6:45. Meet at 6:30 in front of theater.

Description

Due to high demand, Portland Peak Oil is presenting a second chance to participate in our "Introduction to Permaculture Thinking" session, based on the materials contained in Chapters 1 and 2 of The Earth User's Guide to Permaculture, 2nd Edition, by Rosemary Morrow, but expanding into a larger discussion on basic permaculture theory and whole systems thinking. Reading the chapters in advance is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended both for as a foundation for the discussion and because the book is a great introduction to hands-on permaculture techniques that anyone can use.
