Rev. Donald Hoyle preaching
Working Toward a Global Lifestyle
Our guest preacher this morning is Rev. Donald Hoyle, father of Christine Hoyle and retired from thirty-eight years of active ministry in the United Methodist Church. He has long been concerned about global warming and invites us to follow the United Nations Conference on Climate Change, which will take place November 30 to December 11. Rev. Hoyle is active on a Task Force on Climate Change in his home community of Mansfield, CT, and brings many how-to suggestions to congregations and the communities they serve. He was published in a compilation of essays in “THOREAU’S LEGACY: American Stories on Global Warming,” issued in 2009 by the Union of Concerned Scientists. Rev. Hoyle writes, “In the Boston University School of Theology tradition of growing empirical coherence, I have updated my theology in an essay entitled, ‘A Theology of Hope: A New Day of Human Responsibility.’ I feel akin to the theology of Unitarian-Universalism and recently spoke at the local UU Fellowship on “Developing a Global Lifestyle.” We are honored to have Rev. Hoyle in our pulpit and look forward to learning how we can bring our commitments to life. Special music will be provided by Patty Simon and her recorder group, playing music from the Jewish heritage, in honor of Hanukkah.
