The Bible is pretty clear about it: The earth is not ours to abuse. The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it (Psalm 24:1).
Thankfully, many Christians already heed the call to care for God’s creation, but many of our brothers and sisters still don’t get it.
With your help, Sojourners is proud to announce that we are launching a two-year climate change campaign to create a network of faithful advocates who care for God’s creation.
But to fully reach the unconvinced, we need people of faith like you at the front lines of our climate change movement! Will you support this new climate change campaign with a gift to Sojourners?
Climate change is already taking a toll on the world’s most vulnerable people, and the effects are only getting worse. Increased rates of natural disasters, as well as food and water insecurity, have resulted in violent conflict over resources, spread of disease, and damage to human health, especially among the poorest of the poor. Christians can’t turn a blind eye to our neighbors in need. We can’t afford to ignore climate change.
Sojourners’ major climate change work is just getting under way, but we’re already off to a great start:
We’ve hired a director of climate change campaigns to help lead this movement over the next two years. She joined our D.C. offices last week!
Sojourners’ own Rose Berger helped lead the faith-based movement to end the Keystone XL pipeline project. And after President Obama rejected the pipeline, more than 10,000 of you sent him a thank-you note.
We mobilized over 4,000 Sojourners activists to encourage the work of Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, a Christian climate scientist under attack by Rush Limbaugh.
The Christian theology of “domination” has contributed significantly to the degradation of the environment. But the Christian theology of stewardship and sacred relationship between God, humans, and creation is essential to healing the Earth. Christians need to help build the faith-based environmental movement. Give today to be a part of this new movement.
Your fellow stewards of God’s good earth,
