Progressive Christians Uniting
- Location: CA
- Marching Since: September 24, 2006
Progressive Christians Uniting is making a major new commitment to stopping global warming and to activating as many congregations and individuals as possible around climate change issues. Most rational Christians believe that humans were given stewardship of God’s creation, which is a very different thing from being given an absolute right to destroy and pillage the created order. But the latter is precisely what humans have been doing, in particular over the past three centuries during which the accelerating burning of fossil fuels has wreaked unprecedented changes in climate and in weather patterns to the point of triggering rapid species loss, the spread of new pandemics, and other evils. Progressive Christians Uniting will invite congregations to join in the Virtual March and will also seek to educate and motivate “everyday” Christians by means of its new Eighth Day Project for environmental justice. We want “renewable” and “sustainable” to become important terms in the Christian vocabulary, and we want these concerns to be uppermost when U.S. Christians go to the polls to vote their values in all forthcoming elections.
