THEOLOGY ON TAP: Small is Beautiful in an "Up Size It" World

Event Date: 
Monday, May 28, 2012 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Special guest: Luke Stocking, Development & Peace Animator for Central Ontario.

Luke's family comes from a generation of farmers now being called “double green” – green because they are new to farming and green because they seek to create a sustainable small farm community with links that feed people who live near them. The Catholic Church, with its theology of community, work and the land, is in a position to be an example for the rest of the world as we strive for a more sustainable future here on the home we call planet earth. Small farms are the future, that is if the future we want is a healthy one – healthy bodies, healthy planet, healthy souls. Come hear why, for Catholics, “Small is Beautiful.”

Luke Stocking is the Development and Peace Animator (D&P) for Central Ontario. He joined the staff of D&P in November 2006 but was first involved with the movement at the age of 16.

Most of Luke’s work with Development and Peace is done in Canada, educating and organizing Canadian Catholics. However, he has led trips for volunteer members to visit D&P partners in Zambia, the Philippines and , just this past summer, Paraguay.

He has a Master of Arts in Theology from St. Michael's at the University of Toronto, the focus of which was Catholic Social Teaching.

Luke is a proud father of two young children living in the Junction. He sees himself as blessed to be able to support his family while living his vocation, which is spreading the social justice message of the Catholic Faith.
