Watch this message from our churchwide leaders and fellow members across the country who recognize the tough, uncomfortable work of being “called out” into the world. It is an empowering 7 minutes – worth the watch for all of us, not just the voting members who will be sitting in the conference rooms.
For those wanting to embolden their sense of calling to Creation Care for All as ministry inside and outside the church – you don’t need to have a resolution ready, join a march, or preach on climate (yet). Start here:
- consider how painful it may be to talk about renewable resources to a family that has been feeding their families with fossil fuel extraction money for generations, use that compassion to move forward together
- listen to stories from areas impacted the most by unsafe drinking water as you consider your facility’s budgets and how you use the assets often taken for granted
- use tools to cast out fear and authentically speak with love on topics that are important to you (see great “How to Talk Climate Change” tips from ecoAmerica’s Blessed Tomorrow)
- be empowered as you recognize the impact we have on one another as part of a global economy and learn together (at any age) how to prayerfully make deliberate decisions every day.
