Climate Change, Faith and Hope - Easter Sunday
After the Sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said."- Matthew 28:1-6
The Good News of Christ's resurrection brings hope for a new beginning to all of creation. It frees us to seek justice for the most vulnerable among us and to be good stewards of God's earth. It establishes a new covenant that transforms our hearts and unites us to God through great forgiveness.
As you contemplate the impacts of a changing climate and the suffering of God's people and creation, let today be a beginning. A new vision of justice. Life that is transformed.
Christ is risen! Alleluiah!
