Let Justice Roll Down

Patricia K. Tull, author of the 2024-2025 Horizons Bible study, Let Justice Roll Down: God's Call to Care for Neighbors and All Creation, describes her call for creation justice in this way: "When I first learned of the climate crisis, I wondered how a biblical scholar with few practical skills could help and found my purpose in learning about ecology and teaching people of faith what I could. Such is not everyone's skillset or desire, but each of us has something to do with all our hearts."

We invite you to join us as we explore, with all our hearts, God's call to care for our neighbors and creation. Participants will learn about ecological systems, the challenges we face in this time of accelerated climate change, and the possibilities available to address or counter the impact of human-made stress on our environment. Furthermore, attendees will explore theological questions that point us to act and engage in small and large ways. This year's study highlights:

  • Environmental Justice
  • Land Justice
  • Food Justice
  • Water Justice
  • Air Quality
  • Climate Change
  • Economic Climate Justice
  • Intergenerational Justice
  • Sustaining Creation's Health for All 

This in-person workshop is for clergy, lay persons, and leaders of the Horizons Bible study. Registration includes coffee service, refreshments, and lunch.

Date: Saturday, August 24
Time: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Location: Austin Seminary, McCord Community Center
Cost: $35 per person
