Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species—man—acquired significant power to alter the nature of his world. — Rachel Carson
Today’s children will have to adapt, as they grow up, to many impacts of global climate change. We hope they will also continue to seek ways to lessen human impact on our earth. What miracles will they need? Collectively, what miracles can we make? Our seventh Unitarian Universalist Principle affirms our place among all life that shares our planet. This session discusses global climate change and explores the Unitarian Universalist call to stewardship of the earth.
This session will:
- Further strengthen appreciation of miracles
- Demonstrate ways in which Unitarian Universalism is a lived faith by lifting up connections between our ethics and the everyday choices we make
- Introduce human causes and global effects of climate change.
- Understand human causes and global effects of climate change
- Investigate and imagine the future of our planet
- Consider the human potential for miracle-making with regard to our planet’s future
- Commit to actions to take within the congregation and beyond.
