Watch the event live at and join the conversation with #CLUfaithculture

California Lutheran University’s Office of Mission and Identity would like to invite you to gather to watch a live stream of a distinguished speaker coming to our campus. We know that this will be great content, so we are making it available for livestreaming and recorded viewing.

Willis Jenkins will be presenting “Cultivating the Sky: How the Ethics of Food Matters to the Politics of Climate Change.”

More on Willis

Willis Jenkins writes and teaches about issues at the intersections of religious and philosophical ethics, climate change and theology. His award-winning books include The Future of Ethics: Sustainability, Social Justice, and Religious Creativity (2013) and Ecologies of Grace: Environmental Ethics and Christian Theology (2008). In this lecture, he will outline a “moral ecology of food” that relates to how communities address the effects of climate change.

Jenkins is an associate professor of religious studies and director of graduate studies at the University of Virginia, where he earned both a master’s and Ph.D. in religious studies. He is a former director of UVA’s Environmental Humanities program and previously taught at Yale University Divinity School.

This event is a gift from California Lutheran University, powered by the Center for Equality and Justice, the SEEd Project (Sustainable Edible Education), and the Segerhammar Center for Faith and Culture.

More on the Segerhammar Center for Faith and Culture

The Segerhammar Center for Faith and Culture has been established at California Lutheran University as a forum for inquiry into questions of faith, learning, and vocation.  In particular, the Center will seek ways to establish new connections between the church, the academy, and the community, and to promote common reflection on what vocation means in our American culture and the broader global community.
