Advocates of Environmental Stewardship to Speak at Mount Union on October 11
April 01, 2010
Peter Illyn, executive director of Restoring Eden, and Yat Paol, president of the Indigenous Christian Environmental Network, will speak at Mount Union College's Dewald Chapel on Monday, October 11 from 7 ' 9 p.m.
Restoring Eden is a Christian ministry working to help the church rediscover the biblical call to love, serve and protect God's creation. A former pastor, Illyn now travels around the world as a Christian environmental evangelist, promoting environmental stewardship as a core value. He has focused on nurturing environmental advocacy clubs on 30 Christian college campuses.
Paol, a native of Papua, New Guinea, is from the Hinonggomang/Dalam tribe of the north coast of that country. The Indigenous Christian Environmental Network encourages the development of a land-ethic for people who are Christian and fully tribal, trying to chart a course in the global economy. Paol works with tribes that have gone from Stone Age to computer-age in less than 60 years. He is a seminary-trained cultural researcher, author and grassroots activist.
This event is free and open to the public.
