Every Friday, we release our favorite faith and climate stories from the week. We highlight achievements in climate solutions and effective climate communicating to people of faith. We feature helpful tips and strategies for you to implement in your faith community and stories to inspire everyone.

Every week we'll let you know about upcoming events in the faith and climate community, including a special glimpse into our weekly blog which publishes here every Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. (ET).

Email Ryan Smith with questions, comments or to be featured in next week's roundup.
