Phillips Murrah Director and Chair of the firm’s Clean Energy Practice Group, Jim Roth, will serve as a panelist for “An Evening of Listening: Climate Change is Real,” a panel discussion moderated by The Rev. Tim Luschen of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church.

“Jim asked if I would be interested in having a conversation with others about climate change and the writing of Pope Francis and how we might bring this conversation to the wider public here in OKC,” Luschen said. “I sat in on a couple of table discussions and we decided with the support of Dean Lindstrom from St. Paul’s to use one of their Nights of Listening to focus on climate change, especially as it involves people of faith.”

Other panelists will be Pat Hoerth with Turtle Rock Farm and The Rev. Deborah Meinke, Cimarron Presbytery clerk. The discussion will be hosted at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral, 127 NW 7, and is open to the public.
