Religion & Public Life Lecture: Interfaith Perspectives on Climate Change & Sustainability

March 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join GSU’s Department of Religious Studies and GIPL for an evening of faith & climate conversation featuring:

Rev. Kate McGregor Mosley, GIPL Director and GSU Faith & Public Life Fellow
Rabbi Lydia Medwin, Assistant Rabbi of The Temple-Atlanta and Rothschild Social Justice Institute
Amin Tomeh, Professional Engineer and member of Islamic Speakers Bureau

REGISTER TODAY!


The evening’s conversation will explore primarily the Abrahamic faith traditions’ understanding of:

  • How are faith communities participating in meaningful environmental action in the 21st century?
  • What are the ways sacred texts inform our shared response to climate change impacts and building resilient communities?
  • What are tools available to faith communities to respond to the challenges of environmental degradation and the moral call to be better stewards?

This is a free event open to the community. REGISTER TODAY! Please contact the Department of Religious Studies at 404-413-6110 with any questions.

The Department of Religious Studies at Georgia State University selects a fellow each academic year. The position is held by an Atlanta-based high-profile professional who joins the Department for one academic year. This professional — who works in the media, politics, the corporate world, the arts, or a non-profit organization — will explore with us how religion plays a role in his/her profession. Rev. Kate McGregor Mosley, GIPL’s Executive Director, is serving for the 2018-2019 academic year.
