Eco-Spirituality and Climate Change
Rev. Dr. Andrea Lloyd will explore our climate crisis from the place where spirituality and science overlap -the ecotone. She is co-author of the book Letters from the Ecotone: Ecology, Theology and Climate Change. The book invites readers into a conversation between an ecologist (Lloyd) and a pastor (Nagy-Benson) about life in a time of climate crisis: one that travels from the reality of grief to the imperative of hope to the necessity of collaboration across disciplines and differences. This evening’s event, which will open with a reading from the book, is an invitation to join that conversation. The event is co-sponsored by Climate Action Net and Reversing Falls Sanctuary:
Wednesday, September 20th at 7PM (818 Bagaduce Rd, Brooksville)
