St. Barnabas Episcopal Church presents its second First Tuesdays program, “Change a Light, Change the World,” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, in the Parish Hall.
The focus of the program involves the following questions: What is environmental stewardship and what does it mean? What is “global climate change” and what is causing it? How can we best respond to the challenge of energy and environmental sustainability? Why should it matter to people of faith?
Each participant will receive a free compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) that will save $50 over the life of the bulb.
Colorado Interfaith Power and Light and the Governor’s Energy Office are cosponsors of the program. Admission is free to all, and free baby-sitting is available.
