Creation Justice Ministries and CSCS Co-sponsor Climate Workshop for Faith Leaders
Creation Justice Ministries and CSCS are teaming up to host a retreat for faith leaders titled ‘Pastoral Care for Climate’ at the Duke University Marine Lab from June 13th-15th.
In the face of the looming climate disaster, many of us do little about it. We may feel anger, anxiety, or nothing at all. We may feel powerless in this global societal crisis, keeping us from engaging. How can churches help people engage the climate crisis? How can Christians be work side-by-side with scientists to address the challenges before us?
Pastors and other church leaders are unique in bringing together social, emotional and spiritual roles. The training helps empower pastors and other leaders to effectively engage science, broaden climate action in a congregation or ministry setting, and move people from denial and inaction to congregational action and political advocacy.
This in-person retreat is a transformational experience that aims to weave together scientific, theological, and ministry approaches to climate change. Our goal is to increase opportunities to connect pastors and scientists around climate change.
All Christian leaders (clergy and lay) are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to those in the coastal areas of the Southeast U.S.
