Climate Change Get Religion

Clergy and lay leaders from faith communities across Iowa will meet for a conference on climate change. Reverend Susan Guy, executive director of Iowa Interfaith Power & Light, says the meeting in the central Iowa town of Granger will zero in on climate change issues and how churches, synagogues and mosques can make a difference — by reducing their carbon footprints.

Many of the concepts they’ll discuss at the third annual “Faith in a Changing Climate” conference are the same sorts of practices we put in place in our homes to save on our utility bills.

The conference is being held at the Jester Park Lodge in Granger. Iowa Interfaith Power & Light is a response of Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other faith communities to climate change, working with more than 300 congregations in Iowa. Learn more at: www.iowaipl.org
