Don’t Miss Tomorrow’s Faith & Law Forum: Christianity And Environmental Stewardship

Odds are Friday is a travel day for your boss, so why not take your lunch hour and login for 60 minutes of challenging and thought-provoking discussion hosted by Faith & Law with a bunch of other Hill folks to learn about what God says of environmental stewardship?

What God says about environmental stewardship? Yes, God is the ultimate author of environmental stewardship, as He makes clear in Genesis 1, the first chapter of the first book of the Old Testament. That position suggests God considers it a top priority.

The F&L Friday Forum starts promptly at noon tomorrow, February 26, and registration is required to join the Zoom meeting. You can register for the forum here: Registration is required

Three speakers are scheduled to present, including Dr. Jessica Moerman, Senior Director for Science and Policy at the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN),  who will discuss the science of climate change, the role of human activity on today’s global warming, and how environmental stewardship plays a part in Christian witness.

Following Moerman will be two guys I know and respect immensely, John Hart and Drew Bond, founders of Conservative Coalition for Climate Solutions (C3 Solutions).

I was an un-indicted co-conspirator with Hart in the campaign to gain passage of the landmark legislation co-sponsored by Senators Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Barack Obama of Illinois, the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006.

Bond and I were colleagues in the same era at the Heritage Foundation where he was in senior management and I was teaching journalists how to do data analysis in their reporting. He also worked for Sen. Don Nickles of Oklahoma. Drew is an OU graduate, but, as an OSU alum, I don’t hold that against him (Bedlam Week excepted!).

More recently, Hart and Bond joined forces to start C3 Solutions as a way to find global solutions that will make the world a healthier and more prosperous place.

In other words, I can guarantee you will enjoy this hour and come away from it with some insights and understanding that will make it time quite well spent.


 

COMING EVENTS: Can We Build A House United In 2021?

Faith & Law, the collegial, bipartisan  gathering of congressional aides who are followers of Jesus Christ and who seek to integrate their faith with their professional life, is convening an important Zoominar a week from today. Here’s the official description:

“Have rancor and hyper-partisanship in our politics gone so far that recovery is impossible? Is America now a fading, failing democracy? Or can we come together as one nation to revitalize our experiment in ordered liberty in the 2020s?”

David Blankenhorn is president of Braver Angels.

“[David Blankenhorn is the featured speaker for the noon forum.] He is president of Braver Angels, a citizens’ organization working for less rancor and more goodwill in politics and society.

“Before co-founding Braver Angels, David led the Institute for American Values, a think tank on civil society he founded in 1988. He also founded the Mississippi Community Service Corps and the Virginia Community Service Corps and co-founded the National Fatherhood Initiative.

“The author of four books, David grew up in Jackson, Mississippi; graduated from Harvard College in 1977; received an M.A. in history from the University of Warwick in Coventry, England, in 1979; and lives today in New York City.”
