As people of faith concerned about the climate crisis, there are two origin stories that may guide and concern us as we ponder how we ought to live in the world today. One is the Genesis story, which establishes our faith in the God of Creation, and our particular role in nature. Another, is the story (where the industrial revolution set us on a path to climate change) that started years ago on the same soil and the same river where COP26 is taking place today…Which story will win?
As COP26 comes to a close today we invite you to reflect along with Rev. Dr. Neddy Astudillo, a Venezuelan eco-theologian, Presbyterian pastor and member of PHP’s Advisory Committee by reading her article Returning To Where Everything Started.
We also invite you to join our partner, Presbyterians for Earth Care, as they offer a live zoom discussion with Dr. Mark Eakin, well-known oceanographer and contributor to past IPCC reports, to discuss what has come out of the meeting in Glasgow, Scotland in countering climate change.
