Creation Care Ideas Exchange on Eco-Grief
October 3, 2022
This month, the Creation Care Ideas Exchange will feature Rev. Jonathan Brake, UM EarthKeeper, Ordained Elder, and newly appointed Environmental Sustainability Program Manager for the Board of Global Ministries, along with guest Sarah Ogletree, Director of the Creation Care Alliance, as they lead a conversation centered around “How do we talk about Eco-Grief in the church?”. This online event will be held on Tuesday, October 18th at 7:00pm via Zoom.
With all the media headlines proclaiming the latest extreme weather event and un-natural disaster associated with climate change, many people are feeling unsure, anxious, and even grief-stricken over what the future might hold – or NOT hold – for them or their children and grandchildren. Since eco-grief is a relatively new phenomenon and not everyone knows how to recognize or deal with it, join Rev. Brake and Director Ogletree, as well as other members of the conference Creation Care Ministry team, for this time of learning about, and sharing ideas related to, this important topic.
