GreenFaith is an organization that combines a theological imperative for environmental interventions with community-building across religious traditions.
Beyond the theological basis for ecological preservation that GreenFaith promotes, Rev. Fletcher Harper, Executive Director, explains that it also empowers them to take direct action in their community.
In recent years, skepticism about climate change and other areas of environmental has tended to be common in conservative evangelical denominations. But Rev. Harper says that appears to be easing, as a result of generational changes.
Curiously, Harper observes, there is a paradoxical schism between how scientific thought and modern technologies are embraced by liberal or conservative churches.
Rev. Harper will address the annual Bioneers conference in San Rafael on Saturday morning at 9:40.
