Responding to Climate Change

On October 22, more than a hundred people gathered at CDSP for a day of theological reflection, worship and exploration of the church’s response to climate change:

The Rt. Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, the current St. Margaret’s Visiting Professor of Women in Ministry, gave an address titled “Creation and the Effective Word: Holy Storytelling, Creation, and God’s Mission.” Read her address.

Professor Cynthia Moe-Loebeda gave an address titled “Truth-telling, Inequity, and Christian Action.” Read her address.

The day culminated with a liturgy to bless CDSP’s new installation of solar panels led by Bishop Jefferts Schori and Bishop Marc Andrus of California. The panels, installed on Easton, Parsons, and Shires Halls earlier in 2016, make up the largest solar installation of any theological seminary in the United States.
