Free Teleconference: Climate Change & Creation Care
Winning the conversation on creation care and climate change
Purpose: Equip pastors and other faith leaders with answers to common questions on climate change and advise them on how to communicate with climate change skeptics theologically, culturally, and scientifically.
When: Thursday, May 24; 2 - 3 p.m. EDT
Background: The science is clear and so is the Bible, so why is it still so hard to talk with Christians about climate change? Come listen to some of the nation’s leading experts discuss how they answer tough questions and effectively communicate their faith and commitment to climate justice.
