Faithful Resilience: A Study on Climate Resilience for Faith Communities

Tuesdays, January 12 – February 16, 6 p.m., online

Faithful Resilience is a six-part weekly study on climate resilience for faith communities. The climate crisis has arrived. Faith communities must not only react, but also prepare. Over the last decade, hurricanes have intensified, wildfires have burnt stronger, and heat waves have baked our cities. These events can only be expected to get worse in the next decades. Most of our faith communities are not ready for these climate-driven disasters. Yet, the communities who will be most threatened by climate change also have an opportunity to play a pivotal role in building resilience in their towns and cities. Whether a faith community has a large facility, land, social capital, or something else, those assets can be channeled into building climate resilience in preparation for the coming physical and spiritual storms of the climate crisis. Join us for a six-week exploration of how your house of worship/faith community can become a force for climate resilience for your community.

Being Healthy in a Toxifying World
Jan 31 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Being Healthy in a Toxifying World

In January, join Steve Stelzer, Program Director at the Houston Green Building Resource Center, as he discusses the many paradoxes we face as global citizens regarding staying healthy in a world where business insists on dumping toxic wastes into our air and water supply.  Without getting too gloomy about it, Steve will also discuss options for actually doing something about the problem.  Spoiler alert: “Superman’s Not Coming”.  Meanwhile, it seems we might be reaching a critical mass to turn this around. Please register for this talk on www.eventbrite.com. Contact Lisa Brenskelle at gcs.lrc@gmail.com with any questions.
