Humanity is facing cataclysmic impacts of the climate crisis and enormous effects of the loss of natural ecosystems and biodiversity. What is our calling as partners in the care of God’s good creation? The missional role of the Church in actively restoring a harmonious and future-looking interaction with our environment is absolutely essential. This workshop will highlight the courageous voices of Anabaptist Mennonite communities impacted by environmental challenges and explore possibilities for bold leadership towards a vision rooted in justice and sustainability. The workshop will provide a space for listening and dialoguing together on this crucial peace and justice issue.
Presenters: Wendy Kroeker (from Fort Garry Mennonite Fellowship, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; GAPN chair), Andres Pacheco-Lozano (from Teusaquillo Mennonite Church, Bogota, Colombia; GAPN acting coordinator).
This workshop is sponsored by the Global Anabaptist Peace Network (GAPN) and the Mennonite World Conference Peace Commission (PC).
