A Summary: Coming Together in Faith on Climate

By Kelly Crowther

On September 24-25, 2015, Blessed Tomorrow, with our partners Convergence, Washington National Cathedral, Auburn Seminary, Faith in Public Life and Interfaith Power and Light DC, brought together Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other national leaders to an extraordinary event called Coming Together in Faith on Climate. Together, we amplified Pope Francis’ call for climate action for a more just and sustainable world. Watch the event highlights below.

As 2016 unfolds, its important that we continue to grow this message if we hope to fulfill our commitment to caring for creation. Faith leadership will continue to be vital to our success and as Pope Francis said, “…we must regain the conviction that we need one another, that we have a shared responsibility for others and the world, and that being good and decent are worth it.”
