The continuing degradation of the natural environment in which we live as human beings is a major issue in our world today.
What do the Abrahamic faith traditions affirm about our responsibility as human beings to care for the earth that our Creator has given us to live in?
Has the contemporary environmental crisis changed or developed the understandings within our faith traditions?
Do our faith traditions have a distinctive contribution to make to discussion of this issue in our contemporary secular western world?
Our three speakers will address the audience, after which we will hold a group discussion. Light refreshements will be served.
Come to the event, and contribute to the conversation.
