"This Fragile Earth" at CDSP

Saturday, October 22nd 2016, 10:30am

Join us at Church Divinity School of the Pacific for a day of theological reflection, discussion and worship as we explore the church’s response to the crisis of climate change. Speakers will include former Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who is the current St. Margaret’s Visiting Professor of Women in Ministry; Bishop Marc Andrus of California, CDSP President and Dean W. Mark Richardson, and Professor Cynthia Moe-Lobeda, professor of theological and social ethics at CDSP and Pacific Lutheran Seminary of California Lutheran University.

Jefferts Schori will deliver the keynote address, titled “Creation and the Effective Word:  Holy Storytelling, Creation, and God’s Mission,” and Moe-Lobeda will give an address titled “Truthtelling, Inequity, and Christian Action.”

The day will culminate with a liturgy to bless CDSP’s new installation of solar panels led by Bishops Jefferts Schori and Andrus. The panels, installed on Easton, Parsons, and Shires Halls earlier in 2016, make up the largest solar installation of any theological seminary in the United States.

“This Fragile Earth” is designed for both laypeople and clergy who are active in environmental ministry and want to explore new opportunities for reflection and Christian action on behalf of our planet.

Registration is $35, which includes lunch. Register online now.

Students in the GTU's Women's Studies in Religion (WSR) certificate program can receive two program credits for attendance at the lecture.
