Byron Smith completed his PhD in Christian Ethics at the University of Edinburgh. He will talk to us about overcoming fears of climate change. 
Awakening to the climate predicament for many people involves a range of uncomfortable emotional experiences: sorrow, anger, guilt, anxiety and 

helplessness. These responses are entirely understandable and indeed healthy. Yet in order to manage these emotions, many of us engage in coping strategies that are counterproductive from the perspective of taking genuine responsibility for our climate crisis, such as denial, distraction, disavowal, desperation or despair. Byron will discuss how can we find in the Christian gospel resources for responding well to these powerful emotions and move from paralysis to caring, creative, committed action.
