Reckoning with climate change during a pandemic
Climate scientist and Vashon resident Judy Twedt will share stories of grief and resilience from teaching an undergraduate class on climate writing during the global pandemic, and talk about how she brings emotional connection to the science of climate change through music. There will be a time after the service for Q&A and discussion. Please join us for this special presentation and invite friends!
