As part of its Learn Pray Join initiative on climate justice, MC USA will provide a free webinar entitled, “Caring for climate: Beyond denial and despair” on February 27 at 7:30-9:00 p.m., ET. Led by Doug Kaufman, director of pastoral ecology at CSCS and pastor of Benton Mennonite Church, the panel discussion will explore ways that congregational ministries can help people navigate the myriad emotions they experience related to climate and how they can move from inaction to hopeful engagement. See Learn Pray Join resources on climate justice.

Ken Pitts, an environmental science school outreach specialist for Oregon Metro.


Sibonokuhle Ncube, who brings almost 20 years’ experience in various development contexts through her work in Zimbabwe in Southern Africa, including climate change management and finance and disaster preparedness.
