As part of Union Seminary’s “Faculty on the Road” program, Dr. Larry L. Rasmussen will share his thoughts on the topic, “Why Religious Communities Matter to Climate Justice,” on Saturday, February 2, from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. at Round Hill Community Church, where the Rev. Dr. Ed Horstmann, who attended Union,  serves as senior pastor.

Lunch will be served.

In his presentation, Dr. Rasmussen will speak to such timely questions as: If climate change
tugs at how we think about the world and envisage its uncertain future, how ought religious communities enter the fray? What do they bring that is critical for climate justice and is not
easily resourced by other communities?

Dr. Rasmussen is the author of the award-winning book, Earth-honoring Faith: Religious Ethics in a New Key (2013) and co-author, with Bruce C. Birch, Jacqueline E. Lapsley, and Cynthia Moe-Lobeda, also Union graduates, of Bible & Ethics: A New Conversation (2018). He is the
Reinhold Niebuhr Professor Emeritus of Social Ethics at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He has served as the co-moderator of the World Council of Churches unit, Justice, Peace, Creation, among other influential positions.
