A chapter of a national movement to raise awareness of climate change and energy issues among religious groups has opened in Hawai'i and will hold a dedication ceremony from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Church of the Crossroads, 1212 University Ave.

The dedication program for Hawai'i Interfaith Power and Light includes speakers from a variety of religious traditions addressing climate change.

Chuck Burrows, one of Hawai'i's Interfaith Power and Light founders, said he hopes to bring religious and Hawaiian spiritual groups together to work in concert with secular environmental and political entities on the issues of global climate change and energy.
