Minnehaha Academy Welcomes Meteorologist Paul Douglas and Evangelical Environmental Network Director Mitch Hescox for a Compelling Climate Change Conversation and Book Release Event.
Join us for this not-to-be-missed community conversation and book release event about climate change and the Biblical call for Christians to care about the earth.
In this free evening conversation, you’ll learn:- Why Christians should lead the charge for caring for God’s creation.
- How climate change goes beyond politics and affects the health, economy, and stability of future generations.
- Tips to help your family and those around you care for the earth.
The first 500 attendees will receive a free copy of Hescox and Douglas’ new book Caring for Creation: The Evangelical’s Guide to Climate Change and a Healthy Environment.
“Piling on more science doesn't help,” said Douglas. “In fact, it may hinder efforts to open eyes, hearts and minds. We approach this from the standpoint of stewardship, Creation Care and energy freedom.” He added, “Solving this challenge requires nothing less than a transformation to the world's energy sector. But the arc of technology is moving in our direction - we will figure this out, just like we've tackled other looming challenges. It’s a chance to prove American exceptionalism one more time.”
