The Church Confronts the Ecological Crisis
Climate change, species extinctions, dropping water levels, invasive critters and "dead zones" in the Great Lakes. These are among a growing list of threats to life on our planet, the only home we know – and God's creative masterwork.
The ecological crisis is widely regarded as one of the most pressing issues of our time. Yet the faith community has been largely a passive observer, leaving it to scientists, government and secular interest groups to debate the proper response. More recently, however, churches and other religious institutions have begun to take a more active role. Some are trying to influence public policy. Others are focusing on steps that individuals can take to make a difference.
This small group explores these and related questions, and you are invited to take part. We have at least one activity per month. These include anything from a film screening to a nature hike to a service project at church or in the community. Contact John Flesheror call 935-4003.
