News From the National Church --
Climate change statement
from Global Church Leaders

[Sept, 7, 2021] For the first time, the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Anglican Communion have jointly warned of the urgency of environmental sustainability, its impact on poverty, and the importance of global cooperation.
 
Pope Francis, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, and Archbishop Justin Welby urge everyone to play their part in “choosing life” for the future of the planet. 
 
The statement calls on people to do the following:
  • Pray for world leaders ahead of COP26 (The United Nations Climate Change Conference).
  • For individuals: To make meaningful sacrifices for the sake of the planet, working together and taking responsibility for how we use our resources.
  • For those with far-reaching responsibilities: To choose people-centered profits and lead the transition to just and sustainable economies.
  •

To Linda and Jim

Disturb us O Lord
When we are too well-pleased with ourselves
When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little.
because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us O Lord
When with the abundance of things we possess,
We have lost our thirst for the water of life.
When, having fallen in love with time, we have ceased to dream of eternity and in our efforts to build a new earth, we have allowed our vision of Heaven to grow dim.

~ Bishop Desmond Tutu

Closing smiles...
KJS: I like the word “shalom.” I use it in my correspondence, I use it in my sermons, and that’s how I sign my e-mails — “shalom.” To me it is a concrete reminder of what it is we’re all supposed to be about.

Interviewer: Because it means peace in Hebrew?

KJS: It means far more than peace. I think it’s a vision of the human community. Those great visions of Isaiah — every person fed, no more strife, the ill are healed, prisoners are released.
