Katharine Jefferts SchoriThe Episcopal Church’s Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, addressed viewers of a live webcast from Los Angeles last week. She spoke of the urgency of “choosing life”:

“a time of judgment …

We can choose to change our … ways …

We still have some opportunity to choose, but that kairos moment will not last long.

We have before us this day life and death. Which will we choose?”

The Presiding Bishop was not speaking of salvation through Christ from sin and death, but about “The Climate Change Crisis”. (Starting 3:30 into the video.)
