“Faith, Science and Climate Solutions”
SC Interfaith Power and Light hosted a community conversation with Rev. Susan Hendershot, national president of Interfaith Power & Light, and Ken Kimmell, national president of the Union of Concerned Scientists at First Baptist Greenville on June 10.
The special guests led the conversation as part of their a joint speaking tour on the intersection of faith, science, and climate solutions. The tour is also visiting NC, Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama.
Religion and science are not in opposition on the issue of climate change.Science has a great deal to teach us about both the urgency to act and the solutions that are at hand. Our faith informs the actions that we take to care for Earth and all of its inhabitants. So how do people of faith and conscience seize the moral opportunity to lead on the most important issue of our time?
The evening was moderated by Michael Brown, Vice-Chair for Sustaining Way, President of Spartanburg NAACP, and a Spartanburg County Council Representative. SCIPL Program Coordinator Dean Adams provided local context and opportunities for action. The evening was supported by Interfaith Power & Light, Union of Concerned Scientists, Sustaining Way, Annie’s House, SAVER Committee & First Baptist Greenville, and the Southeast Faith Leaders Network.
