The Idea of Nature public lecture series presents: A Webinar with Rev. Lydia Cook, Anglican Priest, Ottery St. Mary, England, “From Lament to Action: Why we should all engage with Eco-Church”

April 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Rev. Cook will explore the theological, spiritual and practical role of Christian churches in the care of creation. She will look at what insights the Scriptures give to help navigate a Christian response to the environmental crisis we find ourselves living in and ask how we can (re)discover a spirituality of creation that speaks into people’s lives in a meaningful way, rebuilding connections with those of little faith or none. Finally Lydia will look at practical ways that churches can make a difference to their local community and environment through
the ARocha eco church scheme.

Registration is free and open to the public.
