Renewal
Community Appeal
How can your faith community be a part of the solution for the ongoing care of the earth?

Renewal can inspire your religious leadership to become involved in the emerging movement of religious environmentalism.  Communities of faith can offer organized support and assistance that no other organization can match by responding to the moral aspects of public policy and care of the environment.  Let the stories of Renewal be a source of renewal for your neighborhood.

Synopsis and Purchase Information
Renewal, 2009

Renewal is the first feature-length documentary film to capture the vitality and diversity of today's religious-environmental activists. From within their Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim traditions, Americans are becoming caretakers of the Earth. With great courage, these women, men and children are re-examining what it means to be human and how we live on this planet. Their stories of combating global warming and the devastation of mountaintop removal, of promoting food security, environmental justice, recycling, land preservation, and of teaching love and respect for life on Earth are the heart of Renewal.
