From the folks at the Back Porch Energy Initiative, about tonight’s discussion:
Because environmental factors affect all people, regardless of background or religious beliefs, we often view the environment as a strictly secular issue. However, it is possible to work within the framework of faith to help alleviate environmental hardships for individuals and the planet as a whole. Please join us as we host Pat Watkins, an ordained clergyman of the United Methodist church and self proclaimed, “missionary to the earth” as we facilitate a discussion linking the often-polarized issues of faith and the environment.
You are cordially invited to join us for conversations on the Back Porch, Monday evenings at GlobeHopper coffee house. GlobeHopper, located at 2100 E Main Street, is home to a weekly forum of open issue-based community discussions. Back Porch moderates multi-media discussions based on social topics of social-interest. Gathering begins at 6:30pm, multi-media discussion begins promptly at 7:00pm.
