Take Action for the Environment!
Environment - As of April, NYAC has divested 50% of the fossil fuel funds and has invested in the equity social justice plus fund for Wespath. The Parish Development team is doing the same. This is not only good for the environment, but also good for investing. We are in the process of compiling monthly reports, which will be posted here when completed.
Watch noted environmentalist and fellow Methodist Bill McKibben's talk at Yale delivered on October 10, 2017, "Simply Too Hot: the Desperate Science and Politics of Climate."
Spiritual Study Guides - For a great adult Sunday School Bible study any time of year, we recommend To Serve and Guard the Earth, a downloadable study. The books are available for children/youth/adult in English/Korean/Spanish.
The UMW publishes some useful resources for adults, youth and children:
Climate Justice: A Call to Hope and Action is for adults.
God's Extravagant Garden is for children ages 5-12.
Joining Voices for Climate Justice is a youth study.
All are available here.
