Creation Care and Climate Change: It’s About the Kids!

Briarwood Retreat Center, 670 Copper Canyon Rd.

WATCH THE LIVE STREAM.

Join us for a discussion about environmental stewardship and actions we can take today as Christians to care for the Earth.

We will look at our theological and biblical mandates to care for the earth with a focus on climate change. We will talk about what we can possibly do about it through world economies, governments, corporations, and our own households for the good of our children and grandchildren.

An outstanding faculty will outline the theological and biblical context for creation care and the Church’s responsibility to future generations. They will show us the urgent need to live out a bold vision: to reduce our carbon footprint and take an active role in public policy.

Presenters include:
Dr. Barbara Rossing, New Testament professor, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
Dr. Mark Z. Jacobson, Director of the Atmosphere and Energy Program, Stanford University
Cheryl Simmons, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Department of Agriculture
Bee Moorhead and the Rev. Sam Brannon, Texas Impact
Bishop Erik Gronberg, NT-NL Synod, ELCA

Discussion will probe next steps. What should we do next, after this event is over? Let’s work together to come up with ideas to bring to individuals, congregations, and the global church. How might the church encourage action everywhere that will address the pressing problem of climate change?
