When we think about the tools for fighting climate change, what comes to mind? Renewable energy, alternative transportation, waste reduction? What about hope? What role does it have to play?

Although it is easy to doom-scroll climate headlines, those news items will only take us so far. To really address environmental issues, it is important not just to know what is at stake but also the solutions gaining momentum. We have the knowledge and resources. Now is the time to act.


Join Climate Action Coordinator Sarah Gardner and Recycling Coordinator Jane Wilch for a discussion about the importance of hope in climate action and hear some recent positive developments on the local level.

Just like previous “Speaking of” discussions, there won’t be any slides or charts, but there will be plenty of opportunity to be part of the conversation, have your questions answered, and celebrate some victories just in time for Earth Month.

  1. While pulling out the stops to “protect” the planet seems like a good thing to some, others of us see that this is a twisted view of stewardship. God has created all the physical aspects of the world. He created it for us. In Genesis 8:22 He has promised that the climate would remain. In Romans 1:25 we see how worshipping the creation instead of the Creator is a sign of wickedness in the world.
    God is going to destroy the Earth. Revelation 16 explains the fate of those who love the world. Revelation 21 draws a mighty picture of the world to come where Christ will reign over all.
    Trust in Him. In him there is no fear. No fear of death, no fear of Climate Change.
