Climate Justice:

Dream a New Church Relation with Creation

19For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God – Romans 8:19-21

Siblings, we now begin a new worship series on “Climate Justice.”  We have multiple speakers lined up to weigh in on this important issue in our world.  This Sunday, we are honored to have Dr. Terry Tremwel who will be kicking off this series!

Dr. Tremwel writes, “In today’s Gospel, chaos is God’s enemy sowing poisonous seed among the wheat. Climate chaos was seed sown by a specific group of enemies. The Church is called to be good seed in the world; then we can multiply our efforts one hundred times or sixty times or thirty times if we are quiet. Good, small seeds grow up into great, global results.” 

Dr. Tremwel continues to write, “This is the charge:  It’s not enough to be concerned about what affects us and our surrounding community; we are also called to live in a way that shows love and concern for our sisters and brothers half a world away, as well as the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every community on earth. Climate chaos caused by our poisonous emissions shows a complete lack of concern for others. Any solutions must be collective, but even our individual actions of love may serve as seeds that just may grow into a movement. Our time is fraught with danger, but pregnant with opportunity and hope. Go and spread the Gospel of radical emission reduction! Go be the beloved community!  

Join us in person or via Zoom or FaceBook Live. 

Sunday service begins at 10:15AM.
