Sermon Title: "Obedience to Oppression = Climate Injustice; How we can Serve Humanity with Our Conscience" "The climate crisis is a spiritual crisis. This sermon will go deep into the roots of climate injustice and how we can evolve our spirituality as a community to serve both Humanity and Nature. We are bound together by love so let us utilize our love to break the bonds of oppression around the world." Zarna Joshi has been an organizer with Rising Tide Seattle and Earthship Seattle. She is a founding member of Women of Color Speak Out, a writer and storyteller. She has published books about Hindu spirituality, self-examination, and cross-cultural understanding. She leads the Seattle Bhakti Yoga group with an aim to focus on the core values of yoga. As a community organizer she has often appeared in the media as an activist for climate justice and social justice issues. Much of her activism stems from her cultural upbringing as an Indian daughter. She says: "I have a heritage of non-violent direct action. We changed the world for the better and we can do so again if we come together as a community."
