A recommendation from Mel


This comes from Indiana Interchurch Center executive director Mel Joliff:

Good morning – The extended hours at home gave me more “opportunity” to watch television and one program inspired me so here it is:

Courage, Brains, and Muscle, Our Environmental Champions at https://www.wfyi.org/schedules/television?search=courage%2C+brains%2C+and+Muscle&submit-search=Submit+Query

Four of us are included in Judy O’Bannon’s program which Christian Theological Seminary sponsored:

Earth Charter
The Sierra Club, Hoosier Chapter (with Rebecca and her band)
The Presbyterian Church, USA
Interfaith Power and Light

My church, St. Peter’s United Church of Christ was also featured, but aside from that, all of the environmental activity that goes on in our state amazed me.

I have volunteered at the White Violet Center at St. Mary of the Woods a few times and visited other places that were mentioned, but this show gave me many new places to see.

You can watch it if you have a WFYI Passport, or if you don’t sleep well, WFYI is re-airing it on January 18 at 3 AM.

You can get a Passport if you donate to WFYI that allows you to watch past shows anytime.
