This week at BBUUC….
April 28: Bob Deyle will present: “Beyond Apocaloptimism: Faith and Hope in the Face of Climate Change”.
Climate change is happening and some predictions of its impacts border on the apocalyptic. Do you have faith that humanity will somehow avoid ecological and social calamity? Where can we find hope that the world our children and our children’s children will inherit is one that can sustain them?
Led by: Linda Crawford • Accompanied by Gary Smart
About Our April 28th Speaker:
Bob Deyle and his wife Trudy have been members of UU Church of Tallahassee, where they raised their two children, Anna and Ethan, since 1991. Bob plans to retire in August from a position on the faculty at Florida State
University where he teaches environmental planning. He has done research on climate change adaptation and coastal hazards since the late 1980s and has taught a graduate seminar on climate change for the past five years. He characterizes his theology as agnostic humanist with a panentheist
conception of mystery.
Bob’s talk today has been simmering since he first offered his climate change seminar and realized himself what a grave future is unfolding. He did not want to leave his students with a sense of futility and despair.
