As we continue to call for bold leadership and advocate for policies rooted in justice and sustainability, we understand that God is calling each of us to respond and that as a denomination we cannot hope to transform the world until we change our way of being in it. (2016 Book of Resolutions, #1035, “Climate Change and the Church’s Response”)
As COP26, the U.N. Climate Change Conference, comes to an end in Glasgow, Scotland, this week, there is still plenty of work to do.
As people of faith, we have a special calling to honor all of creation and establish justice. Church and Society invites you to participate in the winter webinar series, “Climate & Community: A Faithful Action for Climate Justice,” where we will hear from experts and assemble toolkits to help us take the next steps post-COP26.
