The Wednesday Evening Study Group will begin meeting again on September 16 at 7 pm via Zoom. We will be reading and discussing Cathedral on Fire: a Church Handbook for the Climate Crisis by Brooks Berndt, Minister for Environmental Justice in the UCC. The title of the slim book comes from the concept that the natural world around us is God’s cathedral and it is time to act as if it were literally on fire. As I write this, a major forest fire is burning in California and we are all aware of the devastation in Australia earlier this year, so perhaps we do not need to include the words “as if”. Each week between September 16 and October 14, we will read approximately 10 pages of the book in preparation for the week’s discussion.
If you are interested in participating in the group, please contact Esther Ziegler firstname.lastname@example.org or the church office
