Urgency of the times for churches to speak up and lead

June 28, 2015 By: Theoblogical Category: ecotheology, Occupy Theology, People's Climate, Theoblogical

I have come to the conclusion that it is time for churches to break through their hesitancy to raise the issue of climate change and join in with the millions around the globe who recognize the threat, which is coming primarily from our world’s use of fossil fuels. To realize that this is now already having huge impacts, at just 1 degree of warming (melting the arctic) , and that the “goal” has been set to limit it to 2, we have to realize there is an urgent re-thinking and re-tooling we have to do if we are to leave our children anything close to the same world we have known. (Notice I didn’t say “grandchildren”. It’s happening much faster now than when that meme started, and scientists are telling us that prior “estimates” have turned out to be extremely conservative; that things are happening MUCH faster than we knew even 5 years ago.) I do so hope my denomination (UMC) will be among the leaders in setting aside this insane “partisan divide” on this, and give priority to the real threat rather than cower in the fear of losing members. There’s no longer any time for that.
I have just published a new PAGE on Facebook under the name “EcoEcclesia”.  Go “Like” and comment, or comment here.  PLEEEEEZ.  We need to start talking about this EVERYWHERE and in every medium.

Some may think this too “light” on this topic, but I like it.
