Sunday Forum

January 26: The Lancet Study, EAT, presented by Steve Long

One’s diet is a matter of personal concern. Often people determine what they (should) eat based on knowledge about nutrition and on their own medical history. Recently, nutrition has become a public health issue, because of the environmental damage caused by cattle grazing. This forum will present personal diet, seen from the bird’s eye view of global health and sustainability. Can the global picture influence us in matters as personal as one’s diet?
Dr. Stephen Long will present findings from LANCET Journal’s EAT-Lancet Commission. This commission has the most recent evidence about diet and sustainability, and some of the political and economic considerations in creating a world with a sustainable diet.

A New Class on “Basically Lutheran 101”

Sundays, January 12, 19, 26, and February 2 at 12:30 p.m.

The Ecological Crisis & The Response of Faith

Sunday, November 24, 6:00 p.m., online
The CTK Creation Care Team invites you to a monthly environmental education web meeting series whose theme in 2019 is environmental issues, and what you can do. In November, Lisa Brenskelle, head of the team, will discuss the U.N.’s Global Environmental Outlook, a report issued earlier this year, and how faith enables our response to the ecological crisis described in the report. Lisa will examine the science that explains the present state of our world and the major environmental issues we face. She will then consider how our faith both informs and enables our response to this crisis. The first half of this talk reviews the Global Environmental Outlook. The second half of the talk discusses how faith enables a response. Lisa holds a PhD in engineering, and has worked on a volunteer basis in earthkeeping ministry for decades. Join her for this thought-provoking talk! Register for this talk on eventbrite.com. Contact Lisa Brenskelle  with any questions about this talk.
