Giving young adults and youth a forum for serious assessment and action facing the future they will inherit is the role of Our Task.
The network was seeded by a member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Falls Church, Virginia. Gerald O. Barney stewarded his gifts, knowledge and vision, in this project, gleaned from an impressive career which included preparation of the U.S. Government’s international sustainability study, The Global 2000 Report to the President, for President Jimmy Carter. The pool of participants and advisors includes young adults and youth from Holy Trinity to Bangladesh.
Our Task is featured in the current edition of The Lutheran magazine (November 2010). Read an excerpt from “Their Place on the Planet” online.
