This Sunday’s service: Science and the environment

Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy along the New Jersey shore

Our guest speaker this Sunday, January 27, will be naturalist and writer Bill Sargent, a consultant to the public television program Nova and the author of numerous books on science and the environment. Bill, an Ipswich resident, will speak about how environmental change has affected area beaches as well as the long-term implications of Hurricane Sandy.

Formerly director of the Baltimore Aquarium and a research assistant at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, he has taught at the Briarwood Center for Marine Biology and at Harvard University. He has also written a series of children’s books featuring the characters Lily and Minot and writes a blog about the environment called the Coastlines Project.

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Religious education is provided, and visitors are always welcome.
