Special Topic and Special Guest Sunday Morning 4/26/15

How Climate Change is a Religious Issue” will be the subject of a talk by Dr. Stephen Jurovics at both our 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. services on April 26, 2015, four days after the 45th Earth Day.  Stephen will identify several environmental teachings in the Old Testament and describe their relationship to the damaging effects on the earth that result from emissions of greenhouse gases. He will also illustrate how the teaching “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39) served as a guiding principle for decisions about individual behavior within a community.  Between the two services at 9:30 a.m., Stephen will hold a Q&A session about both the biblical and secular aspects of climate change.
