Have you thought about who is under your carbon footprint, and how that impacts your own choices? What is a healthy way to respond personally, and as a community, to this global challenge? As the impacts of climate change become increasingly obvious, we need to hear from our sisters and brothers around the world who are feeling the greatest impact of climate change. We invite you to join us for a firsthand account from the global south of the shifting climate and its effects on individual communities.
Accordingly, please join interested members of Community House Church and Hyattsville Mennonite Church, at Hyattsville Mennonite Church, Wednesday, June 26th at 6:30 PM for a potluck meal followed by a presentation by Dr. Sibonokuhle Ncube of Harare, Zimbabwe. Dr. Sibo Ncube is the National Coordinator of Compassionate Development Service – the relief and development agency of the Brethren in Christ Church of Zimbabwe, a partner agency of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). She has eighteen years of experience in various development contexts, including programs in climate change management, climate finance governance, and disaster preparedness (e.g., recent Typhoon Idai destruction in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi in March). Please RSVP to David Bucher by June 19 if you plan to attend.
