Defiant Hope • Jim Antal


Defiant Hope • Jim Antal

Guest preacher Rev. Jim Antal, UCC climate activist, shares stories of defiant hope in response to climate change, lifting up the powerful actions that many are taking to do so. He exhorts communities of faith to commit—to face the challenge and join with others in taking action. In the scripture for the morning, Paul says to the people of Corinth “you are my letter to the world. You are the ones who carry the word, written on your human hearts” (2 Corinthians 3:1-6). It is a moral imperative for us to live out our resistance to fossil fuels. We are called to envision new possibilities as if they are inevitable.
