hp hdr 4

In advance of Pope Francis’ climate change teaching this week, the Vermont Ecumenical Council released a statement: “The Right Reverend Thomas C. Ely, Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Vermont, and a trustee of VECBS commented: ‘This important paper from the Trustees of the Vermont Ecumenical Council represents well the way that shared values and convictions from people of faith working together can speak to current concerns. This paper, and the way it connects issues of climate change and global poverty, gives voice to concerns that are very much on the minds and hearts of Episcopalians and other people of faith. Climate justice and economic justice are the most important moral issues of our time and I commend this contribution from the VEC to all the people of Vermont and beyond.'”
