For 3 Sundays in a row — October 20, October 27 and November 3 — we at Belmont Uniting Church will be holding 3 timely seminars on our responsibilities as people of God regarding the environmental crisis on planet Earth.
The seminars will begin at 5 pm and a light meal will be served at 6.30.
The Seminars are being organised jointly by the Christian Education and Social Justice Committees. Members of other churches in the Geelong region will also be invited.
On October 20, the speaker will be Prof. Peter Rayner, Melbourne University climate scientist and UCA layman. He will talk about the science and about his views on climate change as a Christian.
On October 27, the speaker will be Peter Saundersfrom the Campion Centre of Ignatian Spirituality. He will introduce us to the Pope’s encyclical on the environmental crisis: Laudato Si.
On November 3, Jan Morgan, UCA eco-ministry teacher, and Graeme Garrett, Anglican priest and theologian, will help us to think about how we might, as Christians, respond to the environmental challenge.
We do hope you are able to come and can put these dates in your diaries now.
