Climate Crisis as Opportunity
(Eco-Justice Notes) "Climate change is an opportunity for which the church was born." That's what Bill McKibben said back in 2006. His words are still quoted by leaders of the faith-based movement for climate justice.
What a remarkable re-framing of the climate crisis -- to see it as an opportunity. In a time when the church is seen by so many people as irrelevant, to see it as an opportunity for the church is even more remarkable. And to see it as an occasion "for which the church was born," as going to the core of our reason for being, well, that's an opportunity that we mustn't miss.
