Educational Forum and Discussion Series at 10:15am on Sundays, as listed, Borgwardt Hall
The shared vision of the two programs, Caring for Creation (C4C) and Caring for Social Justice (C4SJ) derives from the 4 Harmonies of the Bethel Bible Series: to live in harmony with environment, others, ourselves and God. As Lutheran Christians, we are called to care for others and for the Earth.
Leadership Group: Todd Fansler, David Knuti, Sigrid Knuti, John Kutzbach, Gisela Kutzbach, Tom Solheim and Wilda Nilsestuen
This year’s series highlights issues of automotive transportation, the Yahara watershed and Madison’s lakes, and the sustainability efforts and goals of the city of Madison. Past topics have ranged from Wisconsin food systems and supply chains to feeding the World, opportunities for using solar power at Bethel, Madison transportation policies, impact of climate change in Wisconsin, and ecological change in Wisconsin and worldwide. In response to God’s goodness in Creation, we are called to accept his command to care for Creation now and for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

How badly do car and truck emissions affect the environment, anyway? Or is that all just a Chinese hoax? Join an auto-industry “lifer” to learn more about this pervasive technology that affects us all. Expect a few surprises!
