Engaging the Climate Crisis

Climate Change may be a global issue, but it has real and devastating impacts to local communities. For clergy, pastors/ministers and people of faith, as they see their communities effected, there is a realization that climate change is not simply a civics or economic question, it is a moral one. 

We encourage all people, especially people of faith, learn more about how Climate Change impacts God's good world and the ways we can respond to the harm it causes to people and the environment.

Our 2018 Training was a success!  Thank you to the Climate Speakers Network and Climate Reality for their leadership and support. 

Please check back for information about upcoming Trainings. 

Our focus for the training was to offer faith leaders and people of faith the opportunity to network, learn how to best support their communities and congregations, and process the hope and grief of climate work in a sacred sanctuary space. 

The history of this training—The idea for this training follows the success of the Ministers’ Trainings at the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Seminary, in New York City. The opportunity to collaborate with the Climate Speakers Network to bring a similar training to the west coast seemed clear and timely.
