Today our mission must radically change

Today our mission must radically change. That mission is traumatic, ongoing, and accelerating. In less than 200 years. Just a blink in geological time we humans have burnt so much coal, gas and oil, and destroyed so many forests, that our planets climate has become unstable. Sea levels are rising, oceans are heating, acidifying, and filling with plastic. Large populations of animals have vanished, and many species are going extinct. People world wide are struggling with extreme heat waves, droughts, floods and storms. Countless people are going hungry and being forcibly displaced because of climate shocks.

We live in an unprecedented time in human history. A time when God's creation is groaning in distress and the web of life is unraveling. What does this mean for the church's mission?

Most of our churches have NOT responded to this emergency.
