On our April 2020 Connections Call, we lifted up numerous ways we can represent what the ELCA’s Creation Care stance offers and how to implement action from where we are each planted. Since we are all living in very different spaces and each know our own audiences best there seems to be a spectrum of resources. Below is a sampling which we can add to and will continually evolve. While there is no one size which fits all, we can all work in harmony to lift up the common language our faith offers.
From protesting to preaching to praying:
- Rev. Jonathan Barker’s new book: “Jesus Would Demand a Green New Deal”
- Debt: The First 5,000 Years – explains the concept of Jubilee in context.
- Some context (via resolution from Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod) of the Earth Charter as a framework for ELCA to follow since signing.
- Ideas behind a time of Jubilee via Rev. Kristin Foster of the NE Minnesota Synod (shared rough draft of brainstorming – click here)
