Jim Antal – Listening to our voices
November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, Nov.19, at 7:00 PM, Listening to Other Voices presents climate activist, author, and public theologian, UCC minister Jim Antal, who has been in the forefront of the ecology movement from the first Earth Day in 1970. Rev. Antal is a graduate of Princeton University, Andover Newton Theological School, and Yale Divinity School, where he was Henri Nouwen‘s teaching assistant. Rev. Antal founded NEREM (New England Regional Environmental Ministries) and initiated the UCC’s “Keep it in the Ground” project, which prompted hundreds of UCC pastors to preach on climate change.
His belief in our ability and responsibility to participate in the renewal and reordering of the earth will be clear as he speaks to us of science, our collective grief over the ecological harming of the world, and the relationship between racial, economic and climate injustice.
Urging action with resilience in place of growth, wisdom in place of progress, and accountability in place of disregard, Rev. Antal will guide us toward a more hopeful future.
