    Earth Day: 8 Leaders Call on You to

    #Commit2Respond   We re-post this message from the Unitarian Universalist Association and other Unitarian Universalist leaders who urge you to act for Climate Justice starting today.– ed. Today is Earth Day, when people all over the planet celebrate our beautiful, life-giving, and fragile Mother Earth. This year our eight Unitarian Universalist organizations teamed up and created an unprecedented network of concern and action: Commit2Respond. Climate Justice Month, which has been running since World Water Day (March 22), ends today-and we ask you to join us in committing to action in the face of climate change!

    Committing to Climate Justice

      Committing to Climate Justice This post is adapted from the 2015 Earth Sunday Sermon for UU Ministry for Earth, “Shifting Energy: From Fossil Fuels to Climate Action.” Read the full sermon and find other worship resources. By Matthew McHale Over the course of climate justice month, we’ve expressed our gratitude for life, we’ve reckoned with our grief and fear about the converging crises of ecological destruction, massive inequality and global warming, and reconnected with our love for earth and for each other.

    Commit 2 Respond for #ClimateJustice

    What We Will Make of Our Time on Earth During Climate Justice Month we have reveled in the world we live in. We have embraced its warmth, its greenness, its snow, and its sunshine. We have gazed at waterfalls, fjords, icebergs, and countless other phenomena with glee. What a beautiful earth we inhabit! We have also reckoned. Climate change is real. It is happening, and we cannot stop it. Superman will not be using his super lungs to suck up greenhouse gases and expel them into space.
