We're less than a month away from General Assembly. This week members of Fossil Free PCUSA's steering committee remembers some of the reasons that inspire them to care for creation and work for divestment from the fossil fuel industry. We'd love to hear your reasons too!
So much life depends on clean, flowing water. Our Creator gave us the responsibility to care for it and keep it clean and flowing. (Jane Laping)
My two little pirates, Wilson and Thatcher will grow up in a very different Florida than the one I grew up in. They are smiling and dreaming of a pirate birthday party and have no idea what is happening to their birth state. Perhaps they will adjust to the unrelenting hot humid days and nights because it will be their “normal."
But, they will never adjust to the rising ocean that unrelentingly gobbles up more land and buildings every year. They will ask why we let this happen when we could have stopped it. My fervent hope is that I can tell them that their church responded by joining the worldwide divestment movement that changed the world! (Pam McVety)
God calls us, from the very beginning, to love creation and to take care of it. I have known this since I was a child, and now as an adult, I work for creation care in the PCUSA. We must make the world a better place, or there will be no future for children we love. Here are my dear friends Donggeon, Dongjun and Donghyun, three of the four children of parents who work in the Presbyterian church. I want to invest in their future on this planet, not in the fossil fuel companies who profit from wrecking the planet. We must do everything we can to make love God's good creation. (abby mohaupt)
From a very recent trip to Yosemite, I'm reminded of why we do this work. (Susan Chamberlain)
