Climate change workshop coming to Agassiz’s Anglican Church

UFV physicist Tim Cooper will be speaking about the impacts of climate change this January

The All Saint’s Anglican Church is inviting local residents to learn more about how climate change is impacting the world this January.

On Saturday, Jan. 11, UFV engineering physicist Tim Cooper will be coming to the Anglican Church to share a presentation on climate change, its impacts for the future and how it can be prevented. Cooper was invited to the Anglican Church last Sunday (Nov. 24) by Rev. David Price to give a sermon on the environment, and was apparently well-received by the congregation.

“His talk is based on fact, not belief, and it goes back to analysis of science going back hundreds of years,” Price said.

“Everybody was impressed: those who didn’t think climate change is real, and those who did.”

Price met Cooper at one of the Friday’s for Future rallies in Abbotsford in October, and invited him to speak at the Agassiz church.

“I’m a person of faith, but I’m also a person of science. I believe that St. Thomas the Doubter should be called St. Thomas the Scientist,” Price explained. “Being an Anglican, and a progressive Anglican, we have no trouble using reason as a foundation of faith.”

“I believe that God is the force of love in all creation on the planet Earth and in the universe,” he continued. “When we, as humans, are destroying the planet Earth, we are in a way destroying the force of love, and we have to reevaluate what we’re doing.

“What’s more important to us? Temporary greed, or long-term love?”

The January workshop will begin at 9 a.m. at the All Saint’s Anglican Church (6904 Lougheed Hwy). Admission is free, and everyone is invited to come and learn.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly spelled Tim Cooper’s last name. The spelling has been fixed, and we deeply regret the error.
