In 2012, the Christian Reformed Church became the first evangelical denomination in the United States to both adopt a position statement on climate change and issue a call to action to its church and members. In response to this call, a small group from the CRC visited Kenya, East Africa to listen to the stories of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and document how climate change was affecting their livelihoods.
The result was Climate Conversation: Kenya, a four-part video series featuring on-the-ground footage and interviews from Kenya highlighting issues of climate change and environmental stewardship. It’s a chance to meet people, not statistics; to hear stories, not arguments. It is an invitation to a conversation.
Use the videos to engage your church in a discussion about climate change, environmental stewardship, and the role of the church in raising awareness and finding solutions. A free downloadable discussion guide is also available for use with Bible studies, church groups, and more. Both the video resource and discussion guide can be found at Climate-Conversation.org.
If your church has used Climate Conversation: Kenya to engage its members in a conversation about climate change, we want to hear about it! Comment on this post or email your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
