Cabrini College will host the conference “Faith, Climate and Health: Creation Care for a Greener Future” on Friday, April 17 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Radnor college’s Grace Hall.
Cabrini professor John Francis Burke and the Shalom Center’s Rabbi Arthur Waskow will explore Catholic and Jewish perspectives on the natural environment in their respective talks.
Additional breakout sessions include talks by Cabrini professor Carrie Nielsen, Chuck Marshall of Central Baptist Church in Wayne, Rev. Mitch Hescox of the Evangelical Environmental Network, and a session with Rabbi Waskow.
The conference will help participants examine the perils of climate change and how society can address them by seeing the spiritual call to care for God’s creation, to judge the scientific evidence about the threats posed by climate change and to enact practical initiatives to arrest climate change and bring about a greener world.
Admission is free and lunch will be provided. More information and registration (requested) is available at cabrini.edu/climate.
