FORT SHAW, Mont. - Providing food for all, stewardship of the land and emerging technologies are being examined today through the lens of religion at the Faith, Food and the Environment symposium in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Eric Bergman and his wife, Audra, run a small, direct-market farm in Fort Shaw. They're attending, with interest in learning about faith-based perspectives when it comes to agricultural challenges.

"As we continue to develop technologically, and how we can be deliberate in growing feed and feeding ourselves while accommodating a value system," says Bergman.

A top Vatican official, Cardinal Peter Turkson, is a keynote speaker at the event, which runs through Friday.

Bergman says environmental degradation tied to technology will be discussed, as well as hunger.

"We also need to maintain our commitment to the sustainable, rational relationship with the planet we live on and also be true to our social-justice obligations," he says.

The Montana Farmers Union is a co-sponsor of the symposium.
