Thinking About Climate Change and Our Beloved Earth as People of Faith and Hope

Sunday, June 3, 3:00 PM
Church of the Good Shepherd, UCC
7834 Tennyson NE, Albuquerque

Professor Larry L. Rasmussen, teacher, writer and activist, will share his thoughts on the topic “How Do We Hymn the Earth in a Time of Climate Change?” If climate change tugs at how we think about the world and envisage its uncertain future, how ought congregations enter the fray in a helpful way? How do we hymn creation in a tumultuous world? What is our work now?

Dr. Rasmussen is the author of the recently published book, “Earth-Honoring Faith: Religious Ethics in a New Key.” He is the Reinhold Niebuhr Professor Emeritus of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary in NYC, where he currently teaches a course on Climate Ethics. He has served as the co-moderator of the World Council of Churches unit, Justice, Peace, Creation, among other influential positions. Dr. Rasmussen and his wife Nyla live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he was also the organizer of EarthHonoring Faith: A Decade Project at the nearby Ghost Ranch Education & Retreat Center, Abiquiu, N.M., 2008 – 2017.

The event is sponsored by the Union Theological Seminary New Mexico Alumni/ae Chapter. For further information, please e-mail
