On Sunday, March 4, three members of the Green Ministry Team will lead a panel discussion on the crisis in climate change at 11:45 am in Loper Chapel. They include Bob Russell, a widely respected leader in the field of theological and scientific discussion, Barbara Grady, who works for an environmental organization and writes about climate change; and youth leader and environmental activist Emma Fujii.
The panel will address climate change as a moral and spiritual issue; federal and state responses to the challenge; and practical steps that can be taken in rebuilding Pilgrim Hall reflecting the “Paris Pledge” to reduce carbon pollution worldwide. The Church Council endorsed the Pledge in 2016.
That’s an exciting prospect, and central to the Green Team’s vision of First Church in faith-based community leadership.
