Earth Day 2022: Weathering the Storm
Through the season of Lent and into Earth Month, let us discover together how the church might become a hub of resilience in the midst of the spiritual and physical storms of the climate crisis. Join us for this virtual workshop to learn about building climate resilience into your worship. Gain tools on preaching climate justice year-round and learn how to weave climate resilience into your church’s worship for this Earth Day Sunday. Speakers include: The Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, Episcopal priest, author, retreat leader, and climate activist. Facilitated by Avery Davis Lamb, Co-Executive Director of Creation Justice Ministries.
In a reflection on Matthew 3, Ched Myers offers context for John’s words and how we might bear fruits worthy of repentance in ourselves, our communities, and our churches.
How can we proclaim the good news of the Gospel in this time of despair and devastation? In this sermon, Creation Justice Ministries co-Executive Director Avery Davis Lamb draws on the language of "Living Hope" from Peter to explore the connection between hope, suffering, and action, and offer preachers and teachers a Biblically-rooted roadmap to talk about climate change in a congregational setting. Originally delivered for the Presbytery of Baltimore. Recorded October 21, 2021.
