Renewable energy and its benefits will be the topic of the service at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Grand Traverse on Sunday, September 16th.
The service will feature speaker, Stanley (Skip) Pruss, who recently served as director of the Michigan Department of Energy.
Most of the world’s major faith groups have made strong Statements on the need to address Climate Change, and Unitarian Universalists are especially tuned in to this issue. ‘Respect for the interdependent web of all existence’ is a key principle in Unitarian Universalism. The Unitarian Universalist Association has issued a Statement of Conscience that states, in part:
“We as Unitarian Universalists are called to join with others to halt practices that fuel global warming/climate change, to instigate sustainable alternatives, and to mitigate the impending effects of global warming/climate change with just and ethical responses.”
Michigan has an opportunity to make a bold stride to reduce our carbon emissions, if voters pass Proposal 3, the 25 X 25 Ballot Proposal. Details about the Proposal are expected to be discussed by Mr. Pruss on Sunday.
