A whole host of Christian leaders, including Pope Francis, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton, are echoing Bonhoeffer’s call and, in the face of the climate crisis, are urging governments to curb carbon emissions. This September we have an unprecedented opportunity to do our part.
On Sunday, September 21, thousands of people will fill the streets of Manhattan for the People’s Climate March. We’ll come from all walks of life, all parts of the globe, and all faith traditions, but we’ll all be seeking that “better worldliness”: a world safe from the ravages of climate change.
