The Ecological Crisis & The Response of Faith: An Interfaith Discussion on Action & Advocacy


The Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston invites people of all faiths to learn about our present ecological crisis and consider how our faiths can enable us to respond.  What is our present ecological crisis? What specific issues are central? Using the United Nations’ Global Environmental Outlook, issued earlier this year, the speaker will address these questions. All attendees, of all faiths, will then engage in facilitated discussions of how our faiths both inform and enable our response to this crisis, thru both personal and collective action and advocacy. Lisa Brenskelle, the speaker, holds a PhD in engineering, and has worked on a volunteer basis in earthkeeping ministry in her Christian denomination for decades. Discussion facilitators are all leaders in earth care in their respective religious bodies.

Join us for this thought-provoking event at 1st Unitarian Universalist Church, 5200 Fannin St. in Houston.  The presentation portion of this event will also be available online.

Please register for this event whether attending in person or participating online.
