Lowe said he first grasped that reality when he spent part of the summer of 2006 in Tanzania working with scientists who were trying to determine why the fish population of Lake Tanganyika was depleting.
trying to bring the conversation back into the church today, he said.
He was born in Singapore while his father was serving there as a missionary for an organization of several Christian denominations.
Lowe, 29, is national spokesperson for Young Evangelicals for Climate Action and also is director of young adult ministries for the Evangelical Environmental Network.
For generations, fish from the lake have been the main food product and source of income for people in the region, he said, and the low fish production was reaching a crisis. At the time, Lowe was a senior biology major at Wheaton College in Illinois, and his job on the project was to help scientists gather data.
But he was so moved by the plight of the people that he came back with a different perspective. The lack of fish no longer was just a science project, it was a humanitarian issue, one that scientists are still working to Omega Seamaster Gmt Price
The tour is sponsored by the Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, a nonprofit organization that focuses on environmental issues as part of Christian discipleship.

Lowe was at Hardin Simmons University Tuesday as part of the Christians the Climate Crisis speaking tour, which includes stops at 20 universities and seminaries.
And that is the message of the Young Evangelicals for Climate Action. They believe environmental issues are moral issues and they want the church to be more involved.
Lowe said he was fortunate that his parents were supportive of his mission and his work. Not all Christians, and not all churches, are as supportive, he said.
or right, he said, is more a moral issue.
His message fell on fertile ears among the Hardin Simmons students. Paige Goen, a freshman from Patillo in Erath County, said she grew up on a farm and understood the relationship between Christianity and the environment.
church needs to be more biblical, Lowe said, and less cultural when it comes to environmental issues.
