UU Ministry for the Earth

“Climate Justice Sunday”A special service with UU Ministry for Earth

Our lives, our gatherings, our world, in ways large and small, are shaped by the climate crisis. In a time of ever apparent environmental racism, fires, and floods, what day to day habits are we cultivating to accompany one another in unexpected heartache, joy and possibility? What noticing in our lives and practices within our Unitarian Universalist tradition can galvanize and sustain us – as individuals and communities- to embody climate justice? Zoë Johnstonthe network coordinator for Unitarian Universalist Young Adults for Climate Justice, will share her lessons from climate justice activism, particularly reflecting on the ongoing resistance against the Line 3 oil pipeline.

Join our guest preacher, Zoë Johnston(she/her), the network coordinator for Unitarian Universalist Young Adults for Climate Justice, and Daniel Lawlor (he/him), Co-Director of UU Ministry for Earth, as we consider the lessons of contemplation, protest and accountable action in a time of climate crisis.

UU Ministry for Earth seeks to foster education, collaboration, and inspiration within Unitarian Universalist congregations and communities to act for climate justice, celebrate and defend the web of life of which we are a part, and build beloved community.
Curious to learn more ways to engage with Climate Justice? Sign up for a screening of Condor & Eagle, a special documentary available to UU congregations and individuals now through November 30. In the film, indigenous environmental leaders embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Boreal forest to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of “Climate Justice.” The Condor & The Eagle documentary offers a glimpse into a developing spiritual renaissance as the film’s four protagonists learn from each other’s long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy. Their path takes them on an unexpectedly challenging and liberating journey, which will forever change their attachment to the Earth and one another.
