In Christian Climate Action, we long to see the Church step into its potential and show leadership in this climate emergency. It is something that we believe that the Church is so equipped to grapple with. We have the Holy Spirit, who comforts us as we cry for all that we are losing, a Christ who shows us the meaning of sacrificial love and a God who sustains us to take action – and who reminds us that in these desperate times, we are called to be faithful, not successful.
Over the last few months we have noticed a real shift. It is so moving to see the Church really starting to soften its heart to the reality of the climate breakdown at our doorstep. Churches appear to be rising up and empowering their communities to take meaningful action to defend life on our beautiful planet. You can find a number of sermons addressing the issue here and below is St Lukes choir in Holloway singing the Extinction Rebellion song “I’m sorry my friend”.
We are all one body – so let’s share what we are doing and encourage each other as we struggle to understand what being faithful looks like in this desperate time. If your church is doing amazing things to rebel for life, please send us a message or pictures to let us know!
