Who Still Cares about Climate Change?
Congregational Responses to Denial and Despair

This "retreat" will take the form of a weekly virtual seminar, beginning mid-October. Participants will be able to connect to the Zoom format either on screen or by traditional phone if necessary. Doug Kaufman of the Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions and Mark Lancaster of Bethany Theological Seminary are collaborating to bring Brethren and Mennonites in Ohio and the Midwest to engage with climate change. Dr. Sibonokuhle Ncube, former director of Compassionate Development Services of the Brethren in Christ Church of Zimbabwe, is one of several speakers. Co-sponsored by the Climate Justice Task Team of the Southern Ohio/Kentucky District of the Church of the Brethren. Click here to register.
