Creation Care and Climate Justice – June 25
As we do the hard work of re-examining our church structures and our society, it’s the perfect time to incorporate concerns for environmental stewardship.
In this hour, we will discuss briefly:
- why Lutherans care for creation,
- how climate change is related to racial justice, and
- practical steps congregations and individuals can take.
This Leadership academy will be presented by Pastor Sarah S. Scherschligt and Don Craig.
