A Rocha Talks: Responding to the Groaning of Creation in a Changing Climate
June 30, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm PDT
Stories of Christian climate activism, from organizing prayer gatherings to witnessing at the international climate negotiations.
Climate change is affecting everyone on earth. But so often the solutions feel out of reach. What can “little-old-me” do in the face of such a complex web of global, interconnected problems? In this A Rocha Talk we’ll hear from people that have used the weight of ecological concerns to fuel action and engagement. Learn how you, too, can join in responding to the groaning of creation and the renewal of all things.
We will converse with:
- Lowell Bliss, a missionary with more than 15 years of experience in mobilizing Christians in climate actions, the co-funding director of Christian Climate Observers Program (CCOP) and the Climate Intercessors initiative.
- Peter Fargo, a national park manager turned climate advocate in recent years, and now the co-founder of Climate Vigil.
- Ellie Auton-Strolz, a former intern at A Rocha’s Brooksdale Centre, currently studying at UBC. She participated at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow UK last November through CCOP.
