Even for non-religious folks, farming takes faith. Farmers tend their land, plant, hope for growth, and wait for the harvest. Thursday from 12:30- 1 pm CT we will discuss the intersections of faith and agriculture with Matt Russel, Executive Director for Iowa Interfaith Power & Light. As part of the discussion, Russell will touch on the role faith plays as farmers continue and adapt in the face of environmental disasters and climate change.
Matt Russell has spent his career working in non-profits and advocating for social justice. He spent the first 11 years training for and working in ministry and the last 16 years doing secular work focused primarily on economic and environmental sustainability. He is energized to be drawing on his diverse background to lead Iowa IPL since April 2018.
