Hunger & Poverty
The Presbyterian Mental Health Network and the Presbyterian Mission Agency announced a formal partnership during Thursday’s online meeting of the PMA Board.
Keya Chatterjee was speaking to a crowd preparing to virtually walk into the halls of power and ask their legislators to do what many deem impossible: supporting legislation that takes decisive steps to stop climate change and address its impacts.
Fabienne Jean of Haiti doesn’t need anyone to tell her that climate change is real. Her country and its people already are experiencing its effects.
The very first command addressed to humanity in the entire Bible is to “be fruitful and multiply, and fill the Earth and subdue it; and have dominion” (Genesis 1:28). We see humankind displaying a type of dominion when it comes to pollution and extraction of the Earth’s most precious resources with no room for compassion, dignity or respect. But was this control what God had in mind for us when this beautiful Creation came into being?
An ecumenical collaborative that works with homeless families and other vulnerable people is making an impact in Missoula, Montana, with support from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
Why should people of faith get involved in climate justice?
“A lot of approaches to climate change have been secular, and they have failed in the Pacific,” said the Rev. James Bhagwan, General Secretary of the Pacific Conference of Churches (PCC), a group of more than 40 churches and Christian faith organizations across the Pacific Ocean. “And the question has always been asked why the climate projects there that are secular do not have the impact that people expect to have on paper?”
When the Apostle Paul quoted what may well be Christianity’s first creed in his letter to the Galatians, he boldly proclaimed that all baptized believers are God’s children:
“For you are all children of God in the Spirit
There is no Jew or Greek;
There is no slave or free;
There is no male or female.
For you are all one in the Spirit.”
For nearly three years, Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church near Annapolis, Maryland, has been transforming its grounds and nearby woods with native plants to help protect local waterways and attract butterflies and other wildlife.
As climate change continued to fuel natural disasters throughout the United States and around the world in 2020, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance responded with the help of partners and volunteers to bring help and hope to those in affected areas.
While it is not a faith-based occasion, it is fair to argue that Earth Day should be a natural observance for Christians. In the first pages of Scripture, God calls us to care for Creation.
