As Christians, we care about climate change for two key reasons. First, we desire to honor God by stewarding what He has entrusted to us. Second, we believe that caring for the climate equals acting justly and lovingly toward our neighbors. In other words, the first and second greatest commandments as outlined in Matthew 22.
Unfortunately, this biblically-centered approach to climate caretaking has been largely lost to ideological bickering. But we believe the Body of Christ has a critical role to play in highlighting the moral and ethical reasons why we should act on climate change, and for moving our decision-makers beyond the political divide. We also believe that everyone–liberals and conservatives alike–must be part of the solution.
That’s why we’re gathering in Washington D.C. on April 29 – May 1 to advocate for biblically just and fair climate solutions. Climate Caretakers is partnering with Micah Challenge, Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, and the Christian Reformed Church to host Acting in Faith: Evangelical Climate Advocacy Days. We’ll start by joining hundreds of thousands of others in the People’s Climate March on April 29, followed by a day of advocacy training, and finally a day of meetings with congressional offices to share why Christians care about climate change.
Registration for the advocacy training and lobby visits is only $40, but is limited to just 80 people, so sign up now to reserve your spot! Join us to let your voice be heard by your legislators and to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
