An outstanding faculty will outline the theological and biblical context for creation care and the Church’s responsibility to future generations. They will show us the urgent need to live out a bold vision: to reduce our carbon footprint and take an active role in public policy.
Dr. Barbara Rossing, New Testament professor, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
Discussion will probe next steps. What should we do next, after this event is over? Let’s work together to come up with ideas to bring to individuals, congregations, and the global church. How might the church encourage action everywhere that will address the pressing problem of climate change?

The conference will be a very good source of educational materials and other resources on water. The conference focus will include:
Attendance can be in-person or it can be done remotely by a site agreeing to become a partner site to host. The only technical requirements to be a partner site are a web connection, projection capability, and speakers. Trinity provides full technical support before and during the conference, including the facilitation of a test webcast if you’re planning to live-stream.
Trinity will provide guidelines and an instructional video for facilitators. The cost to be a partner site depends on what the site can afford, but it ranges from $100 to $500.
