Join us every Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
In the Service:
January 19, “Listen to the Earth: Perspectives on the Planetary Crisis,” Green Sanctuary Committee
In the year 2020, we are finding our species, and all species, far and deep in a planetary health crisis that has resulted from our bifurcation from the earth. Scientists like Eunice Newton Foote, who grew up in Troy, have known since the nineteenth century that there was a connection between carbon dioxide and global surface temperature. So how, in the face of loss, should we be? Join us as we listen to local environmentalists and we meditate on new ways to be in an age of loss.
Music: Elena Karpoff
NOTE: This service will be followed by a forum in Community Hall at 11:45 with speakers, Albany UU member, Meghan Marohn from the Extinction Rebellion and Keith Schue, engineer – from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Join us and deepen the conversation.
