About 50 people gathered on April 21, the eve of Earth Day, to learn what various religions teach about caring for the earth. The event was sponsored by Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light, Arrowhead Network and the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Duluth. A panel discussion was moderated by the Rev. Bruce Johnson of UUCD. The event was held in the UUC building in Duluth. (Photos by Naomi Yaeger)
