Presbyterians March for Climate Justice

Christians and other people of faith gathered yesterday on 58th Street and 8th Ave in New York City, to raise a voice of concern for God’s creation as the most vulnerable populations suffer daily from the impact of climate change. Just a few days preceding a special Climate Summit called by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the United Nations, people of faith and hundreds of thousands of others showed up to demonstrate serious concern about the lack of policy and action that will really make a difference in the face of the climate crisis.


Here are some snapshots of Presbyterians at the People’s Climate March, Sept 21, 2014, New York City:

Biblical scholar and theologian Trisha Tull reflects on the March in her blog, Inhabiting Eden.  More reflections to come, including what atleast one Presbyterian church did in their own corner of the world, to make music for God’s creation yesterday!
