April 22nd marks the 45th consecutive celebration of Earth Day. Once championed by the subset of 1960s counterculture, Earth Day has transformed into a global movement in which millions look for ways to care to for God's creation. Moreover, it is a time when climate leaders are able to speak with a clear, uninterrupted voice.
In an armistice-like reprieve from the political infighting that surrounds climate change, Earth Day is a moment for collective reflection that enables us to look forward. While our solutions to the problem of climate change may differ, our drive remains steadfast: care for creation.
Alas, we need leaders to help guide us into a new frontier of American prosperity. To do this, consider hosting a creation care event with your congregation with this guide from Blessed Tomorrow, or find further assistance in Earth Day Network's, Leadership Guide.
