After Easter and the first Sunday after Earth Day

Jim Antal, the former Massachusetts Conference Minister for the United Church of Christ, and author of the book Climate Church, Climate World, will be visiting Weston on April 28. There will be a discussion led by Jim that evening from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Congregational Church of Weston UCC. This discussion will explore some of the ways our shared values, which have evolved over centuries and were taught to us from our childhoods, will have to be rethought and reworked to accommodate a sustainable lifestyle for the future. Change like this is extraordinarily difficult to accomplish, but also absolutely essential.

The church hopes several different “green” committees and organizations will come and participate in this discussion. Jim believes that institutions like churches, whose role it is to help people understand what is fundamentally valuable in their lives and to provide a “safe” context in which difficult conversations can take place, are essential voices in articulating a new climate friendly value system for our communities, state and country.

Please bring your friends and come prepared to expand your thinking about this very important challenge our world is facing. For more information: 781-899-5417 or office@westonucc.org.  Download a flyer here.
