Spirituality & the Climate Crisis was a great success, thanks to its many dedicated workers. Among them were our keynote speaker Hannah Askew of the Sierra Club and youth panelists Isha Cheema, Christopher Sanford-Beck, Ben Ingham, Asiyah Robinson and Brendan Noyes, each offering thought-provoking comments to the question “What teachings in your spiritual tradition does the world most need right now, related to the climate crisis?” This was followed by facilitated discussions at 8 tables around a delicious vegetarian meal, and an enthusiastic round of reporting back in the main room. The evening closed with thanks by our gifted MC Flossie Baker and a moving song led by Rev. Shana Lynngood. More photos here.
