Evans to discuss challenge of climate change
The justice, peace and integrity of creation committee (JPIC) of the Church of St. Mary in Alexandria will host an evening of reflection on God’s creation and environmental issues of today.
It will take place on Tuesday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the great hall of St. Mary’s.
The event was originally scheduled for March 18 but was postponed due to inclement weather.
Dr. Bernie Evans from the school of theology at St. John’s University will speak about why people of faith need to address the threat of the changing climate.
