The Adult Book Group will begin discussing Climate Church, Climate World by the Rev. Jim Antal on Sunday February 9 at 9:30 a.m. in the Emmaus Room. Climate Church, Climate World argues that climate change is the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced. Hunger, refugees, poverty, inequality, deadly viruses, war—climate change multiplies all forms of global social injustice. Environmental leader Jim Antal presents a compelling case that it’s time for the church to meet this moral challenge, just as the church addressed previous moral challenges. He suggests ways people of faith can reorient what they prize through new approaches to worship, preaching, witnessing and other spiritual practices that honor creation and cultivate hope. Books are available by ordering on Amazon. If you order through the publisher, you may enter promo code RLFANDF30 at checkout for a 30% discount. You are welcome to join the discussion any Sunday!
