Climate Change Educational Resources
In order to faithfully respond to the climate crisis, it is important we acknowledge the reality and breadth of the issue.
Members of the Education Sub-committee are available to offer a presentation, Climate Change 101: Hope is a Renewable Resource, for small groups and parishes. For more information, contact Kate Varley and Rev. Paula Walker.
In addition, the Commission on Climate Change has compiled the following resources to offer an introduction to the science behind climate change and robust educational material to help individuals and congregations grasp the urgency of this issue and how it will impact us locally and effect our global community:
Climate & Creation Care Highlights
| Lent 2024
Please join the Bishop’s Commission on Climate Change Education Subcommittee for a very special “Love and Act” Lenten Study of reading, reflection, prayer and practice using the SALT Project offering, Climate + Faith.
Designed as a devotional, we’ll make our way through this short 40-page booklet that includes weekly reflections, suggested activities/spiritual practices, and links to videos and enrichment resources.
This offering will be led by Rev. Josh Paget, St. Cross Episcopal Church in Hermosa Beach, assisted by Education Subcommittee Co-Chairs, Kate Varley Alonso and Paula Walker.
The Climate + Faith Lenten Study will be held on Zoom starting on Thursday February 22nd at 11am and continue each Thursday in Lent (February 29, March 7, March 14, March 21).
