Preaching and Climate Change
“For God so loved the κόσμον (cosmos) that he gave his only son…” (John 3:16). And the Word, through whom all things came into being and without whom not one thing came into being, became flesh and lived among us (John 1:3, 14). God’s love and abundant life, revealed in Jesus Christ, transcends humankind and extends to all God’s good creation.
By invitation of our Synod’s Environmental Stewardship Task Force and in response to resolutions adopted at our 2021 Synod Assembly, Bishop Satterlee will present “Preaching and Climate Change”, a workshop focused on strategies for including the cosmos in preaching. This workshop will not include a general lecture on climate change.
At the urging of our Synod’s Environmental Stewardship Task Force, this workshop is scheduled to prepare for the lectionary “Season of Creation” (September 1-October 4), an initiative of the Lutheran World Federation. The workshop will be held on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 1 PM ET via Zoom.
A Zoom link will be sent to those who have registered the day before the workshop.
