Through our Creation Care programs, Sojourners is living out the biblical call of stewardship by working with a diverse group of partners to educate Christians about the need to reverse climate change, advance policies that prioritize clean air and water, and promote individual and legislative actions that support efficient, sustainable, and renewable energy sources.
Tell Congress: Listen to Pope Francis on the Environment!
We're here to tell Congress: Take a chance to read the pope’s encyclical! We need our leaders to hear the message that climate change and environmental degradation are moral and spiritual issues.
"Climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation." — Pope Francis
Pope Francis’ strident critique of an “unbridled capitalism” that is destroying the planet has turned heads across the globe.
Ahead of his upcoming visit to the United States, American politicians, religious leaders, and laypeople are eager to hear how Pope Francis thinks about economics and climate change.
Alaskan Native tribes have long objected to the cultural imperialism embedded in the name “Mount McKinley,” which commemorates a man who never even stepped foot in Alaska.
“Our species, though selected to be a caretaker or steward (khalifah) on the earth, has been the cause of such corruption and devastation on it,” the statement says.
Someone has said that Pope Francis is really a Protestant. He is, if Protestant is defined as someone who protests. His recent encyclical Laudato si' is a protest against the often irresponsible industries as they pollute the environment.
