Deep Faith and Climate Change

May 26th, 2017 · Comments Off on Deep Faith and Climate Change

This guest post from AstroCook is from just before Donald Trump took over the Oval Office but that timing is fundamentally irrelevant to the core of the discussion: an example of the challenge of leaping divides to spark changed thinking on climate science (and climate-science denial) even in a ‘civil’ conversation. From it: “God gave […]

“Climate Change is a Moral Issue”: Prayer session for the Climate at the WH, 15 Jan 2013 (real MLK, Jr, birthday)

January 12th, 2013 · 3 Comments

This coming Tuesday, 15 January 2013, an interfaith coalition will hold a “Pray-In for the Climate” in front of the White House.

Global Warming and the Evangelical movement …

August 8th, 2007 · 3 Comments

With each warmer day, with the growing clarity of the impact of Global Warming, Evangelicals are turning to environmentalism.  As one considers the mandate to be stewards of the Earth, it seems logical that an E2 alliance would be a natural relationship — evangelicals and environmentalists. For too long, in the United States, too many […]

Festival of (Energy-Efficient) Lights … A Global Warming Turning Point?

August 8th, 2007 · Comments Off on Festival of (Energy-Efficient) Lights … A Global Warming Turning Point?

COEJL, the Coalition on Environment and Jewish Life, focused itself this fall on asking the question: “How many Jews does it take to change a light bulb?” and helped tens of thousands of members of the Jewish community in nearly every state purchase and install energy efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs–Hanukkah “chai-lights”–during the holiday […]
