CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE ON CLIMTE CHANGE: A DISCUSSION FORUM
FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, FALMOUTH
The three UCC churches of Falmouth are invited to attend a panel discussion focused on Christian teachings, with recognition that the teachings of Judaism, Islam, and other world religions also provide a basis for environmental stewardship. the hope is to promote discussion and understanding within the Falmouth community of the roles that Christian values play in how we think about and respond to issues of climate change. Rev. Jim Antal, President and Minister of the Mass Conference UCC, Activist and Educator for climate change and awareness, will be part of the panel discussion on "Our Warming Planet: What Should We Do"? This event and subsequent small-group discussion meetings are open to the public.
This is to inform you of the upcoming small-group discussion session on our forum entitled “Our Warming Planet: What Should We Do?”
The final session—on the action agenda--will then take place on Monday, May 21 at the same time and location. There will be no sessions on April 16 or 30 as previously planned, because of scheduling challenges with our host clergy and room space. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
Thank you to those who attended our opening panel forum on March 18 and our first small-group session on April 2. It is not necessary to have attended either of these events to participate in the upcoming sessions.
The May 7 session will focus on the role that Christian values can play in how we think about and respond to issues of climate change. Before breaking into our small groups, we’ll first watch an interview conducted in 2014 by long-time PBS journalist Bill Moyers with Katherine Hayhoe, a climate scientist at Texas Tech University who has co-authored the book “A Climate for Change: Globe Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions” with her husband (Andrew Farley, a Christian evangelical pastor). A transcript of the interview is attached. The interview is also available on-line at: https://billmoyers.com/episode/climate-change-faith-and-fact/.
