Take Action for the Environment!
Environment - 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. One of our Environmental Justice team members, Joonki Kim, has taught this study for two years at the UMW "Mission U". He says, "When I signed up to lead "Climate Justice" at Mission U (2016, 2017), I was concerned at the scope of the topic but I was pleasantly surprised to find the comprehensive and readable text book. Leaders for children's and youth classes were also very happy with their books. The Leader's guide has more than enough material (video, worship, hymn) for the classroom setting. 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 Actionis 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.
