This week in China, unusually heavy rains have wreaked havoc, causing flooding that displaced millions of people and caused hundreds of deaths.
In California, thousands of lightning strikes and dangerously hot temperatures ignited devastating wildfires. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated. The air is literally toxic – the most polluted on the planet.
These climate-fueled calamities are happening with the backdrop of COVID-19. Fires and floods shine a spotlight on how the vulnerable among us suffer far worse when disasters strike. Our hearts are heavy for those in harm’s way.
What wisdom, solace, or strength does your faith, your spirituality provide in these times? As a multi-faith community, we need to reflect together so that our response can be rooted in our deepest convictions.
Join us for the 27 August webinar. (Local times on that page)
