CCSM Reads Climate Church, Climate World

This Lent, we’re taking on a congregational reading project! We’re all invited to read Climate Church, Climate World, by Rev. Jim Antal, who works with the UCC developing resources to equip churches taking on climate change and environmental justice.

Here’s a taster from the book’s website: “Climate Church, Climate World argues that climate change is the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced; it multiplies all forms of global social injustice: hunger, refugees, poverty, inequality, deadly viruses, war. Environmental leader Rev. Jim Antal presents a compelling case that it’s time for the church to meet this moral challenge, just as the church addressed previous moral challenges… so that future generations might live in harmony with God’s creation. After describing how we have created the dangers our planet now faces, Antal urges the church to embrace a new vocation, one focused on collective salvation and an expanded understanding of the Golden Rule (Golden Rule 2.0). He suggests ways people of faith can reorient what they prize through new approaches to worship, preaching, witnessing, and other spiritual practices that honor creation and cultivate hope.”
