Sunday Evening Conversations on Creation Continue…
Feb. 28, 6 p.m.: The State of the Land
Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church invites you to a series of web meetings to talk about creation. Planned as a regular, ongoing monthly series normally held the last Sunday of each month (except December), conversations will be on a variety of topics, both purely environmental as well as theological.
The next web meeting will take place on Sunday, Feb. 28 at 6 p.m. Dr. Maury Harris, an associate professor in the Environmental Science & Studies Department at the University of St. Thomas, will speak on The State of the Land. After his presentation, there will be time for questions/discussion. Professor Harris developed the original proposal for the establishment of the Environmental Science & Studies department and degrees at the University of St. Thomas and subsequently served as department chair. He has worked with many local environmental organizations such as the Buffalo Bayou Partnership, Japhet Creek Nature Conservancy, and the Citizen’s Environmental Coalition. In 2013, he received the Mayor’s Distinguished Service Award from the City of Houston and Keep Houston Beautiful.
