Wednesday 08 April 2015 at 21:29Fr. John Joins Our Movement
Theological Advisor on Environmental Issues to His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, Fr. John Chryssavgis, is OurVoices' newest Spiritual Ambassador. As we mobilise faith communities to take action on climate change this year, Chryssavgis joins the OurVoices network of senior figures from diverse religious and spiritual traditions supporting our work.
After receiving the title Archdeacon of the Ecumenical Throne for the Eastern Orthodox Church in 2012, Fr. John has been a close aid to the Patriarch on environmental issues such as climate change.
Chryssavgis is the author of several books and articles on the intersection of ecology, social justice, and peace, including In the Heart of the Desert (World Wisdom, 2008) and Light Through Darkness (Orbis Books, 2004). Most recently, he served as Director of the Press Office during the visit of Pope Francis to the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
Fr. John Chryssavgis joins OurVoices at a crucial time. We have less than 8 months to show our leaders why it is morally imperative to make the strongest climate agreement for our planet.
