Summary Quote from Speaker
“My vocation as a Christian involves the care and redemption of all that God has made. Global climate change is affecting creation in many negative ways. My concern for both present and future generations of human beings and all of God’s creatures is rooted deeply in my faith.” Jim Martin-Schramm
