Earth Day
Rev. Teresa Schwartz

The climate crisis isn't coming; it is here. There is much to be learned about what is happening—and what will be. In the midst of such large-scale and catastrophic possible futures that are emerging, how do we cultivate our agency—and hope? The earth needs to be saved—but so does her people, including each one of us.
