Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church says “We’re Still in”

This Saturday, June 10, from 12:30-2:00 p.m., the Lancaster Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) will hold a meeting in St. John’s Parish Hall.

All are welcome to this unique chance to become better informed about climate issues, especially in light of the President’s recent decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States, and leaders of many faith communities across the nation clearly defend efforts to protect all of earth’s inhabitants, especially poor and vulnerable communities, in the face of the inescapable challenges of  climate disruption.

“We’re still in.”
Bishop Curry states: “… human beings [are] charged with being trustees, caretakers, stewards of God’s creation (Genesis 1:26-31)… Despite this decision by our President we are still committed to the principles of the Paris Agreement.”
