The Appointed Time for the Church: The Episcopal House of Bishops’ Teaching on the Environment.
April 22, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Faith Climate Action Week (formerly known as the Preach-In on Global Warming) will take place during Earth Week, April 15- 24, 2016. Church of the Nativity, Raleigh in partnership with St. John’s Episcopal Church in Wake Forest and St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Durham will host a number of events. The Rev. Jerry Cappel, Environmental Ministry Coordinator, Province IV, TEC will be our guest for part of this week.. Cappel will lead a Blessing of the new Nature Garden, followed by an Earth Day Pot Luck and discussion, “The Appointed Time for the Church: The Episcopal House of Bishops’ Teaching on the Environment”. This pastoral teaching created by the Episcopal House of Bishops in 2011, much like Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si, contains a clarion call for the people of God to amend their lives and align their faith to the realities of the environmental crisis.
