ResiLENT Worship: Preaching Our Way to Climate Resilience (A Virtual Workshop)
This Lent, let us discover together how the church might become a hub of resilience in the midst of the spiritual and physical storms of the climate crisis.
This work of climate resilience begins in the church. The structure of our communal life lies in the heart of Christian worship. The ways we structure our worship life resonates beyond the walls of the sanctuary. Incorporating elements of climate education and worship of God through Creation can develop norms that support God’s people and Creation in the midst of the climate crisis.
Join us for this virtual workshop to learn about building climate resilience into your worship. Hear three mini-sermons on climate resilience, listen to worship music for the era of climate change, and gain tools for incorporating climate-resilient worship in your community.
