Tools and Resources for Climate Care

On Thursday, April 25, 2024, from 3:00 p.m.-4:15 p.m. PDT, Creation Justice Ministries (CJM) is presenting Culture of Preparedness, the second part of their “Faithful Preparedness, Faithful Resilience” webinar series. 

Avery Davis Lamb, Co-Executive Director of Creation Justice Ministries (CJM) will facilitate a discussion with speaker JR Sanderson, Senior Government Advisor for SBP, "a national disaster recovery and resilience organization dedicated to shrinking the time between disaster and recovery by reducing risk, increasing resilience, and improving the recovery process by transforming the disaster sector’s systems, policies, and programs."

In this second session, SBP will discuss the importance of creating a culture of preparedness at the individual, community, state, and federal levels. Participants will learn how to better identify, understand, and reduce disaster exposure. 

On February 29, 2024, CJM presented the first webinar in the series, Tools and Resources for Climate Care. The Rev. Diana L. Wilcox shared how her congregation is actively implementing climate care initiatives in their community, serving as an inspiring example of faithful resilience in action.

Creation Justice Ministries provides tools and resources to grow faithful resilience from the physical, social, and spiritual storms of climate change.

Their Faithful Resilience Guide is a 6-part spiritually-rooted resource on planning for climate change in congregations. These webinars are part of Creation Justice Ministries' Faithful Resilience collection to help congregations to anticipate, prepare for, and bounce forward into a just, sustainable, and resilient community:

  1. The Land We Inhabit - How can we change how we interact with the land in order to care for one another and grow resilience?

  2. The Fierce Urgency of Now - How can we create a just and beautiful world for our neighbors, now and into the future?

  3. Resilience and Restoration - How can we prepare to support our local community in climate disasters?

  4. Climate Migration - How can we welcome our local and global neighbors who are displaced from the climate crisis?

  5. Building Resilience - How can our buildings be sanctuaries from climate disasters?

  6. Resilient Worship - How can our worship and teaching encourage the building of a resilient community?

CJM also recently launched Faithful Resilience Story Map Collection, which utilizes mapping technology to connect scientific data with spiritual direction.

There is a lot of information from the White House programs under the Justice40 Initiative
