On Monday the 3rd I trekked down to the OSU campus for a presentation the National Catholic Reporter called “a watershed event for climate discourse.” Cardinal Turkson, the President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, was the featured speaker. The first cardinal from the nation of Ghana is a key advisor to Pope Francis and some even perceive him as a possible future pope.
After Cardinal Turkson spoke for about twenty minutes on Laudato Si, he sat down with OSU President Dr. Michael Drake for a brief “fireside chat.”
The inspiring evening concluded with an encore performance by a local gospel choir.
