JOIN US for Discussion and Action on Climate Change Starting June 16th

The United Church of Strafford and the Universalist Society of Strafford are excited to partner together to launch a town-wide book study of Climate Church, Climate World, by our neighbor and national climate activist Jim Antal.  Climate Church, Climate World is a roadmap to help spiritual communities speed the needed cultural change and reorientation of society to avert the worst consequences of the climate crisis.

“This book will inspire both the courage and conviction people of faith need to provide the leadership necessary to realize God’s dream of a just world in which humanity is reconciled to all creation.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu

 

When: Five Sundays in a row, from June 16  through July 14, from 11:45 am – 1 pm, plus a special sixth session with the author, Jim Antal, to be scheduled by the group
