Hubs of Climate Resilience
Creation Justice Ministries is having a zoom webinar Climate Disasters, Faithful Resilience: Preparing Your Congregation for Climate Disasters on Thursday, May 19, 2022 from 3-4 p.m. PDT - Register Here
"The question around disasters is not if something will happen here but when—especially as we see climate change increasing the severity and frequency of severe weather events. When disasters occur, congregations can offer vital care and resources for their members and wider communities. Advance preparation and planning can position churches to respond well."
"As we enter another season of climate-driven disasters, it is time to step back and ask: How can our congregations be hubs of climate resilience, helping our communities weather the spiritual and physical storms of the climate crisis?"
"In this workshop, Rev. Caroline Hamilton-Arnold, Associate Director for Domestic Disaster Response for Week of Compassion, will present resources for disaster response and recovery and will guide conversations and activities for developing context-specific disaster preparedness and response plans."
*Week of Compassion is the relief, refugee, and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
