Final Climate Change Era session set for Thursday at Comox United

7-9 p.m. in the main hall of Comox United Church

Comox United Church and the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship have been sponsoring a six-session course on The Climate Change Era.

The sixth and final session is entitled Facing the Climate Change Era In the Comox Valley: The Inner Journey. It will take place on Thursday evening, March 5, from 7-9 p.m. in the main hall of Comox United Church, 250 Beach Drive in Comox. Admission by donation.

The recent news that more than a dozen coal leases covering a third of the Comox Valley have been issued by the provincial government certainly has a way of focusing our attention.

It seems that we are “under development” by outside interests intent on turning us into Appalachia North.

We need a development strategy. Over the years there have been a number of them put down on paper. Unfortunately, despite the best of intentions of many people, most of them remained on paper.  They ran into the head winds of economic priorities and rigid political ideologies.  And none of them were equipped to deal with the new reality—climate change that is changing everything.

We need a very different approach to development, one that will engage and motivate us local citizens to take back control of our Valley.  We need an approach based upon a set of moral and ethical principles and practical approaches that will create a mutually enhancing relationship between ourselves and the valley itself.  This involves an inner spiritual journey; the subject of this final session.

The session will be led by Mike Bell.  He has MA degrees in communications and theology. FMI contact Mike at 250-890-3671.
