United Church Moderator to Attend Climate Change Talks in Copenhagen

TORONTO, Dec. 7 /CNW/ - "Climate change represents the greatest moral challenge of our time. How we respond is a test of our courage," says The United Church of Canada's Moderator, Mardi Tindal.

Tindal travels to Copenhagen this week as part an international delegation of religious leaders attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference, making a spiritual journey they hope will help to save the planet.

She says she believes that we have reached a pivotal moment in human history, and therefore faith as well as science must inform the outcome of the UN climate change talks.

"Finding a way forward will require that we attend to the best science available, so we are firmly grounded in reality. But it also demands that we recognize the spiritual, moral, and ethical values that have guided humans for centuries so we can work toward a vision of wholeness," explains Tindal.
