United Methodist Church hosts Interfaith Conference on Faith, Creation Care and Sustainability
February 6-10 will be an exciting time for people of all faiths in Atlanta. The United Methodist Church will be hosting the interfaith Caring for Creation Conference at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church.
The Conference will highlight renowned Dr. Matthew Sleeth and his wife Nancy as keynote presenters of the conference. A former emergency room physician, Dr. Matthew Sleeth felt like he was straightening deck chairs on the Titanic saving a patient at a time while the whole ship (Earth) was going down. Together with his wife and two children, he began to bring his lifestyle in line with his values, cutting back on their fossil fuel by two thirds and electricity use by nine tenths. Following a new calling, Dr. Sleeth resigned from his position as chief of the medical staff and director of the ER to teach, preach, and write about faith and the environment throughout the country.
