Churches and religious leaders worldwide are calling on people of faith and conscience to take bold and just action on climate change. The Episcopal Church’s presiding bishop, Bishop Curry, calls it “part of living as the Jesus Movement. It’s a promise to protect and renew this good Earth and all who call it home. It’s a promise to share our stories, stand with those who are most vulnerable, and live more gently on the Earth.”
We all see where inaction takes us – a melting Arctic, burning Australia, and vanishing rainforests. But we are empowered to make changes in our own lives that bring hope and, collectively, meaningful change.
