January 27, 3:00 PM
In calling attention to the “mounting urgency” of environmental degradation and its impact for the planet and all of humanity, the Episcopal Church House of Bishops issued a pastoral teaching last year. “This is the appointed time,” they wrote, “for all God’s children to work for the common goal of renewing the earth as a hospitable abode for the flourishing of all life. We are called to speak and act on behalf of God’s good creation.”
In the spirit of the pastoral teaching, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will discuss Perspectives on Spirituality and the Environment on January 27th at 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 914 East Knapp Street, Milwaukee. All are welcome to attend this important discussion. Evensong, a choral service with prayer and readings, will follow for people of all faiths.
Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori is the first woman elected as a primate in the worldwide Anglican Communion and earned both a PhD in oceanography and a Doctor of Divinity. She is an outspoken advocate for environmental and climate issues. She testified to the U.S. Senate on climate change and its impact on people living in poverty in the U.S. and around the globe.
