Preaching Climate Justice in Lent

Tuesday, February 20, 2024

10:00 – 11:15 a.m. • Online (free)

As the world awakens to catastrophic threats to our climate and as authoritarian leaders threaten democracy, Lent invites us to join Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem. If we are to engage the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced, we need Jesus’ guidance. This webinar will suggest ways in which our Lenten texts provide an opportunity to shape sermons that offer hope to our congregations, engage their imagination, and inspire them to take action for climate justice. 


The Rev. Dr. Jim Antal (Special Advisor on Climate Justice to the General Minister and President, United Church of Christ). His book, Climate Church, Climate World, has been read by hundreds of congregations and is now in a new, updated edition.

The Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas (Missioner for Creation Care, Episcopal Diocese of Western MA & Southern New England Conference, United Church of Christ; Creation Care Advisor, Episcopal Diocese of MA). A selection from her co-edited book, Rooted and Rising: Voices of Courage in a Time of Climate Crisis, was recently featured in Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditations.

This event is co-sponsored by the two Episcopal dioceses in Massachusetts and by Southern New England Conference, United Church of Christ.
