One thought on “Christine Boyle”

  1. Since I am retired UCC clergy, I am not up to speed with UCC positions on climate change or the recent GC42.
    Great to be introduced to you as an educated person in Indigenous Studies. I am Mohawk, therefore awakening to my history and the repression and abuses of Indigenous peoples for over two hundred years. I am also very interested in the science and politics of climate change and its impending tipping point. Please see my blog for more information on me and my spiritual/cosmological philosophy which reaches beyond orthodox religious and political doctrine. Namaste. BG
