Climate Change and Spirituality – series 2016

In a 5-part series coordinated by Peter Rood, we’ll hear from leaders from 5 major religious traditions:  How does each spiritual tradition inform us about taking action on global warming?

One session will focus on the Encyclical Laudato Si’ by Pope Francis (published May 2015).  The Feb. 24 session will focus on the Muslim perspective, and Mar. 16 the Hindu perspective.  Other planned speakers will give Jewish and Buddhist perspectives.

The international climate talks in Paris are fresh on our minds, and Peter chose to make this the focal point of his Lenten “Soup and Spirituality” series.

Speakers will be:

  • February 17 – Alice Druffel (Christian)
  • February 24 – Jihad Turk (Islam)
  • March 2 – Elizabeth Rice (Buddhism)
  • March 9 – Jason van Leeuwen (Judaism)
  • March 16 – Chris Chapple (Indic)

You can attend any session that interests you, or as many as fit your schedule.  Come join curious people as we gather for a simple meal and a speaker, to reflect upon this pressing issue.
