Preaching Gospel Hope in a Time of Climate Crisis


Friday and Saturday, October 16 and 17, 2020, morning and afternoon

Climate change is called the moral challenge of our time, yet many preachers avoid discussing it. Through a mix of presentations, small group conversation, and whole group discussion, we will discuss the spiritual/moral imperative to preach about climate change, identify obstacles to climate preaching, share the latest research on how to communicate about climate, discuss theological keystones, consider the links between climate, poverty, race, and other justice issues, and receive theological and homiletic resources.
